Winery notes (2006 Vintage)
"The grapes derive from vineyards in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa and from selected areas of Rioja Alta regions. Vines are grown with a traditional goblet-pruned system on very poor calcareous soils with a clay loam texture.The fermentation and maceration process is carried out over 20 days in stainless steel vats. The daily pumping over allows an optimal extraction of colour and tannins. The aging process lasts for 30 months in 225 litre American and French oak barrels. Three rackings are undertaken. The wine matures in the bottle for three years before it is released to the market.

Having a beautiful brick red ruby colour half layer which precedes an aromatic explosion with notes of aging (vanilla, roasted coffee, spices …), ripe fruit (raisins, caramel) and very subtle notes of bottle aging: leather, dry leaves, tobacco, etc. As the wine opens out, the aromas become more intense. In the palate a smooth and silky, perfectly assembled taste is emphasized. It is very prolonged, with a sensation reminiscent of velvet and a pleasing aftertaste."


90/100 JamesSuckling.com, August 2018 (2006 Vintage)
"Dark, earthy notes with graphite and tarry elements and rich plum essence. The palate has a smooth core of spicy plum-paste. Chocolate and dark berries to close. Drink now."
