This exceptional Rioja has just been awarded 91 PTs by one of the most famous wine critics in the world James Suckling.

The wine has a cherry red colour with a ruby edge. Beautiful sweet nose of vanilla  and toasted oak notes from the 12 months ageing in American oak.  Ripe black-cherry flavour mingles with coconut in this full-bodied, lavishly oaked, fairly dry red wine.

It has a rich, almost chewy texture, lots of fine-grained tannins for grip and structure yet a smooth and velvety mouthfeel and potent fruit concentration that powers through the finish.
