A rock-solid gran reserva with tobacco, tomato leaf, pepper and lovely dried fruit aromas. The palate is round and comfortable, with tobacco, baked fruit and brown sugar flavors. Pure and silky on the finish, with length. Excellent aged Rioja with a more traditional character than many of the new-wave wines are showing.
