La Rioja Alta

Sarah Jane Evans MW gives her tasting notes and drinking window for La Rioja Alta.

An exceptional taste of Rioja. Ready to drink after six years in oak, and more in bottle, but also ready to start its journey to a very long life ahead. A promising beginning with the blend of tobacco, vanilla, forest floor and red fruits.
