A well balanced wine with fairly subtle but classic Rioja flavours. Smooth and fairly easy drinking after a good spell of breathing. I would have given it 4 stars if it had a touch more vanilla.
Excellent Classic Rioja from a lesser known producer
Had this for a family lunch and went down a treat. Paired it with roast lamb which was a perfect combination. Decant at least 1 hour before.
Excellent rapport qualité / prix pour ce digne représentant de la rioja tempranillo/ grenache et bien sûr Graciano qui en asssure l'équilibre....
