Ripe blackberry with dill and vanilla suggest “classic” Rioja, although it's probably more modern than that. The wine features a full body, thick tannins, roasted berry flavors, molasses and a bit of chocolate. Maybe it's a touch baked and overripe, but it's definitely solid and generous. Drink now.
