Tasting Notes…

Don Jacobo Gran Reserva Rioja Tinto is a great wine, produced only in classic vintages; it spends 22 months in cask before a further seven years in bottle. Made from 85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha-Graciano. The colour is bright and intense cherry-red. With its aromas of red fruits, compote and pastry with hints of vanilla oak. Whilst the well balanced palate is smooth and silky and enormously complex with its lingering spicy finish and soft tannins.
