Category Red Wine

Shiny ruby colour. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long afterstate that brings back floral and fruity memories.

In the 2016 Reserva, I found very good freshness and balance and notes of red fruit that always point at more contained ripeness, and it also has a completely different oak profile, a lot subtler and more integrated than in previous vintages. This is a clean and aromatic modern Reserva with some fine tannins to be resolved by some more time in the bottle and/or with hearty food. It's a blend of 89% Tempranillo and 11% Graciano matured in barrel for 15 months. 148,217 bottles and 1,000 magnums produced. It was bottled in July 2018.
