    Interest is stirred right away by tarry aromas of wild berry fruits and rooty spices. The solid palate is creamy while also showing its teeth. Toasty, spicy baked-berry flavors are integrated and finish long and dry, with a touch of latent oak. Drink at any point through 2032.

    This impressive red from one of the most prolific producers in Spain offers exactly what youd expect of a gran reserva Rioja: a complex, layered nose and a palate brimming with dark red fruit, with fragrant notes of herbs, a bit of tobacco, and a hint of vanilla on the finish. It is beautifully structured, with enough tannins and bright acidity to balance the fruit, a pleasantly round mouthfeel, and a lively finish. The wine is aged in American oak for a full 24 months after being vinified in stainless steel, and rests for a further 36 months in the bottle before release.

    This is a comfortable, round wine that's shaped by its oak tannins, with gentle red fruit cozying up to the oak spice. It feels full and sappy, the spice providing enough briskness to keep it structured. Ready to pour with roast eggplant stuffed with ground veal.

    This generous red delivers a mouthful of flavor, with plum, licorice, orange peel, cigar box and herbal notes. The plush texture has enough tannins and citrusy acidity to stay balanced and lively. Drink now through 2024."
