2009 Gran Reserva Rioja DOC
Cloudy garnet black color. Earthy, spicy aromas and flavors of dried berries, wintergreen, menthol tobacco, and chocolate nuts with a silky, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length spiced tomato, cedar, and nutskins finish with woody tannins and moderate oak. A rich, spicy, cellarable Rioja with an intriguing wintergreen note.
