Baron de Ley Reserva Rioja 2012 

Dark and purple color. Nose of black berries, coffee, bitter chocolate, spices and oak. Dense and powerful on the palate, the vanilla filled finish does bring some charm to the wine. Bold but still expresses fruit flavors, spices and coffee notes. May be a little on the young side, but some air or few years in a cellar and it’ll just good to go! Very good (89)

Made of Tempranillo. Aged 20 months in American oak barrels, then 24 months in bottle prior to release. Alcohol level of 13,5%
