(2023) Another parcel of mature wine that's nine years old, it's Rioja, but made from Graciano, with not a trace of Tempranillo. There is an earthiness and sense of leathery maturity in this sample, a little leafy and cedary character rather than forward fruit. In the mouth it does reveal more black fruit, but still that leathery note and a background of charry oak. Some black cherry fruit and acid comes through as this opens more in the glass. Quite intriguing this, coming good with a bit of air which suggest decanting perhaps.
