Earthy, dusty plum and berry aromas are concentrated, while this mature gran reserva is still vital on the palate due to fine, crisp acidity. Classic Rioja flavors of vanilla and tobacco accent raspberry and dried cherry flavors, while the finish is mild, harmonious and full of oaky vanilla notes. Drink through 2025.
