Tasting Notes:
tasted: April 18, 2007 , from a member
88 points "Color: bright; Finish: medium; At first, soft and fruity, but lacking much else. Once it opens up, the fragrance of the Tempranillo emerges, and the wine fills in to a more balanced whole. It remains on the light side, though."

"http://www.riojalta.com/ingles/rdo_busqueda2.asp?amp=140 -- Made from the Tempranillo (90/95%) grape with a touch of Mazuelo. Aged for 2 years in cask (the first one in new oak) and 1 1/2 years in bottle. Very attractive full bold flavors with hints of vanilla. A delicious bouquet with classical Rioja characteristics. 12%-12.5% Vol. It fulfills all the official requirements to be considered a Reserva wine, and is in fact sold as such in the export market. -- TASTING NOTE: Colour bright cherry red with touches of iodine at the rim of the glass. A strong, elegant aroma with hints of the grape variety married with cinnamon and coconut from careful cask ageing. In the mouth the wine is smooth and well balanced with a delicate touch of acidity so typical of the brand and the sub area. The aftertaste is long and most agreeable with a persistence reminiscent of its maturation in oak."
