Red and black fruit aromas, smoky nuances and slight hints of the maceration. In the mouth it is powerful and tasty. A very good balance between fruit and fine toasty flavors.
2019 is an excellent vintage in Rioja Alavesa, which yielded well-balanced, fully ripe grapes with good acidity and lower alcohol. The climate was far more Mediterranean in style over the growing period in contrast to the much cooler, wetter conditions of 2018. Yields were around 20% lower than average but great for quality thanks to smaller berries offering intense flavors with depth and complexity.
