The Full Review
This Rioja is both savory and fruit-forward, with spiced aromas including sandalwood, cedar, and tobacco. It's medium-bodied with flavors of red fruit, and dry cocoa powder. The texture is smooth, with powdery tannins and a long finish. It's aged in both French and American oak, resulting in a style that falls between modern and traditional. The wine is both elegant and rustic, and well priced. If you like flavorful wines that are charmingly rough around the edges, this is a great choice.
