Wine Review: “Lightly baked berry aromas vie for attention with leather, spice and mild earth notes, and the result is disjointed. On the palate, this is tight as a drum initially, but more expansive as it unfolds. Cherry, plum, raspberry, vanilla and woodspice flavors finish pure, clean and easy. This is a fine yet manageable Rioja that’s not trying too hard. Drink through 2016.”
My Review: Garnet in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of dark plum and cherry, black pepper, and spice.  Tastes of light under ripened berries with some astringency.
