CVNE Rioja Imperial Reserva 2018

$52

An elegant version, with hints of pencil shaving and star anise lacing the pretty notes of ripe black cherry and currant fruit, jasmine and mocha. Fine tannins firm the finish. This isn't a powerhouse, but more of a fresh, crowd-pleaser. Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Drink now through 2028. 12,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
