Tobia Óscar Tobía Reserva Rioja –
It shows bright and clean; deep red cherry color and garnet on the border. Intense and elegant stream of aromas first showing fruits such as dried prunes, cherries and liquorice. Then spicy notes like black pepper, cloves and nutmeg arise followed by reminiscences of tobacco leaves, all over a fragrant background of tofe and smoky hints. On the palate it is gentle, velvety, and voluminous. Meaty, rounded full bodied and unctuous. Rounded feeling in the mouth. Ripe with a long and lingering finish. Very polished tannins with highly spicy aftertaste.
