Minerally aromas of iodine, charred beef and burnt coffee are dark and smoky. This modern, smooth-bodied Rioja is freindly and complete on the palate, while flavors of dark berries, prune, chocolate and espresso push things in the direction of jammy. This is ripe to the max, with loads of fruit and flavor but a soft structure. Drink through 2020.
