The grapes for this wine are, relatively unusually for Rioja, sourced from vineyards of just a single village, in this case that of Labastida just east of Haro, so it has a bit more of a specific terroir than many. The vineyards here are on poor limestone soils at a fairly high elevation. The wine is aged for 10 months is French oak and the result is a modern style of Rioja which is fairly full bodied with ripe red and black cherry fruit flavours and savoury spice. There's also a touch of creamy vanilla and sweet spices. It's soft and silky on the palate with plentiful soft tannins.
