This feisty young bodega uses fruit from high vineyards in west La Rioja and French oak to produce a rich, tobacco and rose scented Tempranillo. Deep ruby, fading towards garnet. Its hard to know where to start – red and black cherry, purple plum, tobacco, chocolate, hazelnut, bayleaf, cinnamon and rose. The palate is complex, feminine, sexy and assertive. Full bodied yet fresh – a real treat.
