Located in the Rioja Alta and the Rioja Alavesa, the vineyard is grown mainly using a traditional goblet-pruned system on very poor calcareous soil with a clay loam texture. The fermentation and maceration process is carried out over 20 days in stainless steel vats. The daily pumping over routine allows an optimal extraction of colour and tannins. The aging process lasts for 24 months, including three rackings in 225 litre American and French oak barrels. The wine matures in the bottle for two years before it is released to the market.
92/100 James Suckling (2011 Vintage)
"Floral and subtle fruit character on the nose follows through to a full to medium body, soft and silky tannins and a flavourful finish. So refined. Hints of herbs and pepper towards the end."
90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2011 Vintage)
"Baked, rooty aromas of sandalwood, exotic spices and berry fruits are attractive. Though slightly grabby on the palate, this shows the right structure and build. Flavours of up-front oak, herbal plum and raspberry finish dry, with firm, pinching tannins. Drink through 2021."
90/100 Wine Spectator, May 2016 (2011 Vintage)
"Pretty fruit flavours of strawberry and raspberry mingle with vanilla, spice and light herbal notes in this alluring red. The tannins are light but firm, while citrusy acidity keeps this fresh through the vanilla-scented finish. Drink now through 2021. 600 cases made."
