Smooth and rather lush for this price point. Nice spicyflavors and black pepper nuances throughout as it intertwines with the blackberry fruit. Grilled center cut pork chops and veal cubes skewered with cherry tomatoes and red and green peppers makes this a match in heaven.
El Jamon Crianza has attractive cherry red with ruby and tawny hues from barrel aging for 6 months plus an additional 12 months in bottle before being released. This extended aging can be taken for a classic Rioja, situated only 150km due north. Intense aromas and flavors of vanilla, strawberry, cherry and spice notes linger on the finish.
