Description

Critical Acclaim:

Brilliant ruby-red. Fragrant red berry and candied rose scents, with hints of vanilla and cured tobacco in the background. Silky, sweet and open-knit on entry, but the sappy raspberry and cherry flavors tighten up in the mid-palate. Shows very good clarity and lift on the clinging finish, which is framed by supple, slow-building tannins. Score: 90 points -- Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Nov 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine made from grapes from the Rioja Alavesa area harvested and processed manually in Viña Real. The destemmed grapes were placed in stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation takes place for 10-12 days with temperature control between 26-28 º C. The wine after malolactic fermentation happens to French oak barrels where it remains and American 13 - 14 months. The wine is racked barrel while in every 5-6 months to encourage proper ripening and organoleptic evolution.

This wine shows shades of medium to deep shiny cherry colour on a purple background. To the nose, intense aromas of ripe fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) stand out, complemented with subtle hints of oak. To the palate, it shows structured and round with a good integration of fruitiness and oakiness. The aftertaste is marked by very well balanced tannins as well as by persistent spicy, toasty and balsamic aromas. A long stay in bottle is the finishing touch to this Rioja Alavesa wine's character.
