Hedonism4.5

Notes: It appears very deep ruby/garnet with good viscosity. On the nose it's clean offering intense cherries and brambles, cedar and coffee beans, cloves, and mineral irony notes. On the palate is dry although a minimum residual sugar is just noticeable, balanced med+ acidity, med+ alcohol, medium+ to full body with very good concentrated mid palate, good flavor intensity and nice grippy but velvety tannins. Med+ finish. Very Good quality, It's enjoyable now (bit more modern style than traditional Riojas )but will definitely improve in the next decade or more. Premium Price. 70% tempranillo, 20% garnacha, 7% mazuelo and 3% garciano, Rioja, Spain.
