Wine critics reviewsReviews by Suckling and Jancis Robinson

A rich and rather decadent Rioja with ripe berry, tobacco and bark aromas that follow through to a full body with layered, creamy tannins and a long, fresh finish with lemon peel and apple to the dark fruit. Touches of coconut and toffee. Drink or hold.

Should age beautifully as it has all the components in check.
