Wine Details & Tasting Notes

90-points International Wine Report

We talking about hand-harvested, gnarly 70- to 120-year-old vine juice aged in 2nd and 3rd pass French oak for 16 months before resting in the cellar for an additional 12 months.

The nose of this wine is nothing short of complex with red fruits, savory oak-influenced dark chocolate, resinous blackberry and blueberry and undertones of leather accented by strawberries. The entry is abound with fleshy red-to-black fruit, leather, tobacco, and well integrated wood tannins framed by an excellent minerality. The finish is dry and long, showcasing Rioja terror and proving to be as exceptional a food wine as it is a solo sipper. More time in the cellar will only benefit this bad boy, but quite enjoyable today with a proper decant.
