The highest-rated Spanish wine on Decanter’s ‘Most Exciting Red Wines in 2019’ list.

Tasting notes:
'Plenty of characteristic toasty oak aromas. Harmonious and perfectly balanced palate, with lovely juicy fruit underpinned by lively acidity. Drinking Window 2020 - 2029.' – Decanter, 93/100

'Classic Rioja aromas of vanilla, spice, tobacco and dried berry fruits carry this wine. On the palate, this warm-vintage gran reserva has energy from well-stored acidity, while the flavors include cherry, plum, mocha and a plethora of spices. Chocolate and tobacco flavors along with general warmth crowd the finish. Drink through 2030.' – Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

Alc: 13.5%
