Tasting

"A perfumed nose of dark cherry, plum, coconut, cedar and dried thyme. Full-bodied with chewy tannins. Rich and structured with a chalky texture and a firm, delicious finish." 92 Points James Suckling

From selected vineyards in several areas in Elciego (Rioja Alavesa). Bright red cherry color of medium intensity. Intense, deep and complex aromas of ripe red fruits, combined with aromas from the barrel aging (spices, coffee & vanilla). On the palate, it is balanced and elegant, with a high level of freshness and a long, deep and pleasant finish. Aged for 24 months in (50% French 50% American) barrels, with an additional 12 months in the bottle. 30% of all the barrels are new.
