WS 87 WE 88


Colour: Brilliant, medium-to-high depth. Cherry red in the center of the glass with a garnet and tawny rim.
Aroma: Intense and complex to the nose. Aromas of spices and new wood (toasty, leather, vanilla and balsam) against a mild alcoholic background.
Palate: Well-finished. Powerful, enveloping tannic notes in the mouth that develop into an elegant meatiness and just the right acidity to match any dish.

Reviews:

"Plum, dried cherry, dusty spice and leather notes mingle in this mature red, which is still quite fresh. A balanced wine, it will make a fine accompaniment to delicate dishes. Drink now. 100,000 cases made. ĖTM" -Rated 87, Wine Spectator

"A little bit leafy and light, but thatís traditional Rioja for you. The color is a mix of orange and red, while the palate of snappy red fruits is beginning to slip toward peach and nectarine. If you like a leaner, racier style of wine, then drink this now. Itís probably at its peak. - M.S. (9/1/2007) " -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast
