Mission Briefing

Codename:

And justice for all

On opening, this is a structured wine with ample tannin. Decant or swirl for an extended period and be rewarded with a softer and more flavorful wine that expresses more fruit.

With spice, fruit and earth that play together in a beautiful way, this delicious wine earned a fantastic 91 point score from Robert Parker, who is notoriously hard on Spanish Rioja.

Priced just right, this wine delivers terrific value.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep scarlet at its core, transitioning elegantly to a nice, lighter red rim.

Smell:

A delightful balance of fruit, earth, and spice, with deep notes of blackberry and plum mingling with berry bramble, freshly fallen leaves, clove, black pepper, and just a hint of cinnamon.

Taste:

Very reminiscent of the nose, with the continued wonderful interplay of fruit and earth. Concentrated plum and blackberry are laid overtop aged leather, cigar box, sage, rosemary, and clove.

Finish:

This wine opens up beautifully after decanting, revealing a nice structure and well integrated tannins.

Pairing:

We would recommend pan-seared lamb chops, served with a black olive tapenade.

What the Winery Says

This wine, intense ruby in color, offers an intriguing bouquet of dark plum and strawberry jam that is very controlled and well-defined. The wine is complex, but with soft and supple entry on the palate, leading to a magnificent finish.
