From a bodega founded in 1885 in the high-altitude Rioja Alta region, where the ripening season is long and warm. This Gran Reserva spends 2 years in oak casks, followed by 3 years maturing in bottle prior to release. A fine and elegant bouquet, full of trademark aged Rioja aromas: raisins, dried figs, cinnamon and vanilla. Velvety on the palate, with time-mellowed tannins, and a long, smooth finish. Lovely with roasts or game, or try with the winery’s own recommendation of baked cod.
