Almost entirely Tempranillo, this is a muscular and sleek Rioja with sturdy structure and tannin, dark red fruit and tarry spice on the finish. This is a "newer" style for the estate, following a visit from Hubert de Laforest of Chateau Angelus in Bordeaux. He was very impressed with their vineyards (averaging 50 years in age though the vines for this Crianza bottling are more like 35) and offered a collaboration, bringing these old vines to their full potential in this more modern style.
