In a nutshell:
An excellent and inexpensive organic Rioja made along traditional lines.
This comes from a high altitude estate near Alfaro where the mature vines sit in poor, stony soils that have been converred to organic production. 50% of the blend spends 3 months in French oak, which lends it a subtle roundness in the classical style of Rioja. It's full of vibrant plum and black cherry flavours and aromas which are enveloped by a striking mulberry character. The palate itself is complex with juicy bramble fruit, black pepper and satisfying savoury character.
When to drink:
If you like your Rioja in the classical style this is one for you. It's good with red meats, casseroles and mature hard cheeses.
