Castillo de Sajazarra

DO Rioja, Spain (100% Tempranillo) 750 ml Aged in French and American oak for 24 months RECENT REVIEWS Smoke and leather aromas are matched by dried red fruit and spice tones. This is racy on the palate, with a fairly full body. Vanilla and caramel flavors turn darker and toastier with airing, while the fruit on this older Rioja favors cherry and currant. Cocoa, tobacco notes with a juicy length define the finish. Drink through 2024. — 91 POINTS, M.S., Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2015   RJ12.
