This Rioja wasn’t detectable as a great one when just having a first sniff at it, but, oh boy, it so delivered later on – this wine should be indeed blamed for the typical to Rioja strawberry and plum flavours together with vanilla (woody, but sweet) – it is simply pleasant.
It is juicy, more refreshing than your average Rioja and offers a straightforward fruit taste line.
I believe Torres did a good job, yet you will be just OK with it.
There is an abundance of Rioja wines and we all want just a bit more these days. An introduction of a bit more complexity to it would definitely make this wine outstanding, just a tad more please!
