"A thick, firm texture carries ripe flavors of blackberry and fig paste in this solid red. Notes of dark chocolate, smoke and forest floor add complexity. The tannins are well-integrated, and balsamic acidity keeps this lively. Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2028. 60,000 cases made, 7,500 cases imported. -TM" (WS)

"This classic red Rioja has lovely balance, the silky tannins supporting the full body very nicely. The bottle maturation has polished the long, dry finish. Drink or hold." (JS)
