Ripe and woody on the nose, this modern Rioja smells like cedar and marzipan along with loamy earth and black fruits. The palate is plush yet right on in terms of balance. Toasty, leathery blackberry flavors come with a dash of saltiness, while licorice, spice, toast and fig flavors go the distance.Drink through 2022.
