Soft and mineral, with a mix of red and dark fruit in a floral register. Open and expressive, with nutty tannins and a lick of spicy acidity, it's clearly Rioja and perfectly varietal Tempranillo. There are purple and blueberry aromas with savoury elements of dried lavender, heather and shaved nutmeg. The palate is clean, with refreshing natural acidity. Fruitfulness lengthens to a long, savoury earthen finish and the chalk soil is reflected in fine tannin.
