Deep ruby. Dark berries and pungent herbs on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy and broad, with very good depth and sneaky notes of licorice and cracked pepper. A sweet vanilla note emerges with air and carries through a long, smooth, gently tannic finish. Maturana is a variety that's native to Rioja but almost extinct now.
