Degustation notes

Distinctive dark ruby? colour, a slightly mature, open bouquet with hints of spices and vanilla, a classic Rioja nose, intense aromas of juicy berries, medium strength, nicely balanced, with supple tannins and a long finish. A beautiful classic wine.

    Flach, sauer und an der Grenze zu ungeniessbar. Habe die 18 Flaschen weggeschüttet, da nicht mal zum kochen geeignet. Gran Reserva für 10.- kann ja eigentlich nicht gut kommen (selber schuld:-(
