Palate Profile

Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo, the three classic Rioja grape varieties. Graciano provides a very lively color and high acidity; Mazuelo flavour and abundant tannin, both together with Tempranillo are the perfect coupage for long ageing wines. True to Rioja, true to its origins.

Cherry red developing to an intense ruby color. Intense and complex. Well integrated sweet and warm hints with ripe fruit, notes of vanilla and sensations of cinnamon, blond tobacco and cocoa.

Elegant in the mouth, structured and with good acidity. The finish is sweet and surprising for a Rioja Gran Reserva. There is an aftertaste of the blend of very ripe fruit, vanilla and roasted notes.

Comes in Wooden Cases of 6

Critic Awards

A very pretty wine now with cedar, mushrooms and dried red fruit. Medium body, fine tannins and a subtle, polished finish. A wonderful old Rioja now.

A classically styled Rioja that's only produced in top years. Nose of spicy black and blue berries. The palate shows good balance between fruit and oak (24 months in American and French barrels). Blackberries, ripe red fruit, savoury hints, smooth, rounded tannins and a long spice-driven finish.
