Rioja Reserva, La Antigua Clasico
Sustainably grown vines planted from 1940-1955. Tended in silica sandy soil at 730 m (2,395 ft) elevation.
24 months in stainless steel tanks plus 48 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels.

Dark red. Blackberry, cherry-vanilla and pungent flowers on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Lush, open-knit dark berry flavors become spicier with air, picking up notes of candied lavender and coconut. Supple and seamless on the clinging finish, which shows appealing sweetness and a hint of licorice.
