Intense cherry red colour, with violet tones.
Fruit aromas, good varietal expression and freshness. Its flavour is smooth and rounded on entry with very pleasant, velvety sensations. Its tannic structure is elegant and very well constituted, its aftertaste is noteworthy for its lasting finish.

The year has been marked by meteorological phenomena of little significance on the whole. A harvest that developed in keeping with the usual calendar and that has turned out to be one of the longest harvests in the history of Rioja, characterized by good weather at the end of the cycle and by an improvement in the initial production expectations. The abundant accumulated rainfall recorded during the winter and spring of 2018 led to an excellent situation in the vineyard during the first months of the cycle.
