Good Rioja from a challenging vintage; the nose deals cherry and a dusting of spices, before turning sharper and leaner with air. Like in previous years, the wine veers toward elegance as it shows red fruit and tea flavors before a grabby, firm finish. Not the best Propiedad but once again, the year was problematic.
