Dark and deep, with maturity as well as kept-up youth. Odds are you will love this alta expression Rioja for its violet and blackberry aromas, its stately overall bouquet, and its sweet, smooth plum, black cherry and smoke flavor profile. With coffee and chocolate coming in layers, the finish is excellent. From Bodegas Lan; and while it claims to be a limited-edition wine, production exceeds 2,000 cases.
