A big, dark, modern wine with lemon and shoe polish on the nose but also rich black fruit aromas. The palate is both elegant and beefy, with lush blackberry and copious spice and chocolate flavors. Finishes full, mossy, rich and slightly herbal. A big success for varietal Rioja Grenache; drink now through 2012.
