The Rioja Regulation Council rated the 2005 vintage as “excellent”. The selection begins with choosing the best vines and is followed by the production and ageing process – 18 months in French oak barrels. Then, comes an extended period in bottle when the wine is laid down, all of which is designed to ensure an elegant and well-rounded product.
In short, a classic Rioja.
Visual: mid depth cherry red colour, clean and bright coupled with a good tear.
Nasal: the dominant note is that of balsamic and of spices such as those associated with fresh leather, toasted almonds, ground coffee, black pepper, and clove while in the background one can detect the aroma of ripe red fruit and compote all of which help to smooth and round out the wine.
Taste: well-rounded in the mouth with velvety tannins. Once more, we are aware of the balsamic and the spices. Agreeable aftertaste.
