Rioja, Spain

Tasting Notes

Before swirling the glass aromas of cocoa, confectionery and vanilla dominate, but once the wine is swirled notes of black fruit and stone fruit appear, along with an intense aroma of liquorice, cloves and balsamic notes. On the palate it is powerful, rich and shows ripe tannins. The back palate is rich in ground coffee flavours. Elegant, complex and with a long finish.
