Tasting notes


New wood, spice and strawberry. Enticing. Soft strawberry fruit with spice and cedar. Well balanced and well made. Acidity and tannin to last. Lovely length. Drink up to 2018.


This 2002 Rioja is just beginning to show some attractive bottle-aged personality. The nose has a strong core, good weight of fruit and a dash of earthiness. In the mouth it is supple, rounded and offers a harmonious blend of ripe fruit and bottle-age finesse. Clean and well made. £10.99
