Deep red, against a cherry background with scarlet edging. High-to medium-depth colouring.
Very smooth and intense, with the waves of Atlantic freshness typical of vintages from the high, westerly provinces of La Rioja. Upon impact, these waves of aroma release alternating impressions of red and black fruits, cherries and plums. Hints of minerals develop in the nose, along eith smooth, fresh spices.
The wine conveys the sensation of a stroll through the woods, among the fallen leaves and the damp earth, while at the same time providing a reminder of minerals, the cocoa and the plums that are so typical of RODA I.
Elegant, delicate, with a good body that persists throughout the mouth without diminishing. Silky tannin.
The fruit is very complex and spicy, moving through the mouth before finishing with an explosion of freshness.
After drinking, the wine leaves very fine aromas of fruit, along with hints of woodland and earth that hark back to a rainy spring and cool summer, with a fine autumn that adds the signatory flourish to one of the best Atlantic-style vintages we have produced.
