Medium ruby, purple rim. Notes of garrigue come out first, followed by a floral/animal touch and delicate red fruit notes; not much oak. Stupendous finesse on the palate, the delicate powdery and tight tannins are very refined. Fruit is pure and precise with great distinction. From a 1.9ha single vineyard and made by a rising star of the Rioja, this is extremely refined and seductive, not powerful or meant to dumb your tasting buds. An achievement in winemaking.
