Bright garnet red, with a noticeable purple rim. Nose with a very clear dominance of ripe red fruit and stone fruits, such as cherry. A light aeration, traces of fruit jam appear, followed by sweet notes of coconut and patisserie. Silky on the palate, with sublime tannins from start to finish, and a richness of texture from the high glycerol content. Long and persistent, with clean and enjoyable fruit notes appearing again, followed by palate enveloping tannins. An essential element in the Mediterranean diet, it goes surprisingly well with tapas as well as expressing itself perfectly alongside more substantial meals, such as pulse-based stews, lean meats, charcuterie and homemade stews.

Fresh berry and red plum aromas are lifted by complementary notes of oak grain and vanilla. This value-priced crianza from a very good year feels flush but primed by punchy acidity. Red plum, berry and a hint of wood spice make for a classic Rioja flavor profile, while this remains tasty and fresh on the finish.
