This Reserva from Bodegas Taron spends a year in stainless steel tanks before being transferred to American oak casks for 14 months. This allows the wine to settle before ageing in barrel. The result is a wonderfully complex Reserva with fantastic ageing potential thanks to the naturally high acidity that occurs in wines from this northern Rioja Alta area. The wine is ruby in colour with garnet hues with notes of violets and cherries on the nose. The palate is soft with notes of red cherries, red currants, citrus peel, cinnamon, balsamic and toast. Soft tannins and a fresh acidity gives structure to the wine which finishes long and complex.
