Bramble & cherry fruit flavour with a light peppery finish. No tartness on the finish as I sometimes find with some Rioja. Lots of Vanilla shows from the American oak which I enjoyed
This was given to us over Christmas and I was pleasantly surprised. Thought it showed better than the vina pomal crianza (2010 vintage so might need to settle a while longer)
If you like your Rioja full of vanilla then this is a good one to go for.
Currently on offer 2 for £12 (normally £8.99) so I've bought 2 bottles for when friends of ours who have just got into drinking red wine and like it loaded with vanilla come to visit in Jan
