My Rating 78 Points.
Deep ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Sour nose of raspberries, wild flowers, strawberries, earth, leather, forest floor, smoke, green pepper and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body with high acidity and long legs.
Tart on the palate with raspberries, cranberries, tart strawberries, pomegranate, oak, licorice, vanilla, spices, earth, leather, green pepper, coffee and peppercorn.
Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
This unique Rioja is made from 100% Graciano grapes. Unique, because these grapes are usually used for blending in Rioja.
It is spicy and earthy, but also tart and unbalanced, and doesn’t have enough fruit for the acidity. Not for me.
Better food wine than a sipping one. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
14% alcohol by volume.
