One of Rioja's best wines is quite fine, but not nearly as deep and expressive as it has shown in top vintages. The nose offers earth and subtle spice along with black fruit, while the palate is deep and smooth, with blackberry, mocha, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors. Medium-long on the finish. Drink now through 2015.
