The Gran Reserva is a traditionally styled Rioja Gran Reserva. It's silky and elegant, well balanced, powerfully structured, and medium-bodied with great refinement, opulent tannin, and zesty acid. It resounds with flavors of bitter cherry, chewing tobacco, plum, milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, earth, smoky minerals and candied licorice flavors. The finish is dry and lingering.
