Dark garnet color and a nose of cherry and earth; smooth, bright, and juicy with mature notes of plum and spice. Balanced and complex, long and complete.

Mixing fruit from the various villages in the Rioja Alta with 15% fruit from Laguardia and Lanciego, this stylish, Tempranillo-dominated Reserva is made to a commendably consistent quality. Aged in French oak, it's dense, concentrated yet refreshing with bramble, black cherry and nutmeg flavors and fresh acidity.
