Serious Rioja but made in the modern style; structured but approachable, with layers of ripe plum and blueberry and a fine wisp of tobacco on the nose.
It pairs well with roast lamb, red meats and richly sauced dishes.
The 2010 growth cycle had a very favourable weather which allowed for optimum vegetative and sanitary conditions until the end of the cycle. Flowering and fruit set were slightly delayed but a good number of medium-size clusters were obtained. The grape harvest began on the usual dates and we enjoyed a dry and sunny weather what helped the grapes in reaching a high level of ripening with an excellent healthy state thanks to the lack of pests and diseases. Harvest: October 2010. Great harvest conditions.
2 days cold maceration, and a short fermentation over 8 days. Final 9 days maceration on the skins. 36 months ageing in American oak from Ohio, Missouri.
