...this is one of the coolest corners of Rioja, with their blended Rioja made from a blend of seventy-five percent tempranillo and twenty-five percent garnacha... Their 2015 Tinto is excellent, offering up a deep and complex nose of black cherries, Rioja spice tones, a bit of espresso, a fine base of soil, cigar smoke and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and moderately tannic today, with an excellent core, fine tangy acids and excellent focus and grip on the nascently complex finish. This is approachable today, but is really built to cellar... It is an excellent wine from an exciting new winemaking couple in the firmament of old school Rioja...
