vinous logo"Shimmering garnet. Aromas of cherry, blueberry, candied flowers, tobacco and coconut pick up a smoky overtone with air. Smooth and fleshy on the palate, offering ripe red and blue fruit, mocha, cola and spicecake qualities that tighten up on the back half. Finishes long and supple with repeating spiciness, even tannins and a lingering suggestion of red berry preserves. This old-school Rioja was aged for two years in 90% American and 10% French oak. - Josh Raynolds"

"Prepare yourself for the pheromones of a packed Madrid subway car—right there in the wine’s funky intensity. Or think of it as ripe currant, dried flowers, star anise, the peat of a cranberry bog… Either way, it’s a wine that asks for liver, whether from a calf and sautéed with caramelized onions, or in the pork pâté of a banh mi sandwich."

vinous logo"(aged in new and used French oak barrels for two years) Dark red. Dark fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of espresso and vanilla. Fleshy and warm on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black currant and cherry-vanilla flavors and building smokiness. In a lush, open-knit style, with smooth tannins shaping a broad, smoky, persistent finish. - Josh Raynolds"
