Aged two years mostly in French oak (30% new), its deep ruby/purple color gives way to a brilliant wine that's loaded with notions of ripe black cherries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, crushed violets, cigar, and lead pencil shavings. It's rich, full-bodied, has a terrific mid-palate, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. This is a beautiful wine.

This is a reserva from a barrel selection looking for a combination of a more traditional style (balsamic, notes of cigar ash) and the fruit from San Vicente, with intensity. It's medium to full-bodied with some grainy tannins and integrated acidity. It has started developing some complexity and tertiary notes, and my guess it that this should develop in bottle toward a more traditional Rioja profile. They produced 39,457 bottles from a selection of 132 barrels. It was bottled in February 2018.- LG
