Senorio de San Vicente Tempranillo, Rioja DOCa, Spain 2014
"aged for two years in a 90/10 combination of French and American oak barrels, all of them new) Opaque ruby. Suave, oak-spiced cherry and raspberry qualities on the nose, along with suggestions of pipe tobacco, incense and vanilla. Sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, offering intense red fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. In a graceful, open-knit style, finishing very long and with smooth tannins framing the wine's sweet, oak-accented fruit."
