Woody aromas of vanilla complement ripe black-fruit scents. This wine feels dry, comported, mildly tannic and nicely structured. Flavors of cherry and blackberry are accented by oaky notes of vanilla and toast, while hints of baking spices lurk around the edges. A dry, classy, well-oaked finish seals the deal on this excellent Rioja; drink from 2020–2028.
