A second vintage of this, from a similar source. And again, a good example of a £10-15, modern-style, attractive Reserva Rioja. A touch jammy, but no worse for that. Medium ruby with some rim garnet. Coal-smoke, vanilla, coconut (American oak?), slightly jammy blackberry, raspberry and a clear note of orange peel. Cocoa hints too. Medium, fine-grained tannins, medium body, medium+ acidity, and intense black- and raspberry flavour. Medium+, smoke & vanilla finish. 16 / 20.
