(2022) A difficult harvest in Rioja, but the winery is very proud of the wines they produced in this vintage. Certainly this Crianza has a lot of love shown to it, a selection of the best fruit from high altitude vineyards, and ageing in new French oak barrels. It has an open and attractive nose, the toast and cedar of the oak evident, perhaps a slight weakness of the vintage showing through on the palate despite some very smooth and creamy tannins and acids giving it a supple character.
