2019 Badiola Las Parcelas Rioja
From vineyards with an average age of around 50 years old approximately a quarter of this wine was aged in new French oak barriques for a period of 6 months.
Midnight black heart with a dark red black tinged hue. A mix of new leather and graphite like notes greet the nostrils. Peppered meats, sour cherry and fresh herb notes ensue. Medium bodied with a bright tangy like feel, a mix of spicy sour to dark cherry fruits are followed by some earth, leather and peppered meat characters. Chewy tannins with a bright aftertaste of moderate length.
Cellar 4-5 years.
