Beautifully opaque, dark cherry red color. Delicious fruit (black cherry) with exquisitely delicate spicy notes (clove). Wonderfully elegant, velvety palate with very fine-grained tannins that carry the aromas and flavors through to the finish.

STORY In making this red DOC Rioja wine, we only used grapes of the exclusive Graciano variety. The origin of the Graciano grape remains a mystery, but upon reaching La Rioja, it quickly became a favorite in special and reserve blends. This exclusive, limited-production wine stands out for its intense red color, potent aromas and excellent cellaring potential.
