2011 "Licenciado" Reserva Rioja DOC
Garnet black color. Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of dried and baked berries, pistachio nougat, spice cake, and cherry cola with a silky, lively, fruity medium body and a tingling, subtle, medium-long chocolate mint and almonds, menthol tobacco, caramelized lime and tomato, and dusty earth finish with well-integrated, crunchy tannins and moderate oak. A wonderfully spicy and herbal Rioja with a great range of flavors.
