"Glass-staining ruby. Lively and complex nose offers candied cherry, blackberry, violet, minerals and spicecake. Open-knit, intensely flavored and nicely detailed, offering juicy red and dark fruit flavors and complicating notes of allspice and anise. Tannin-free and alluring right now, with very good finishing clarity, lingering floral elements and sweetness. This is very easy to drink right now and shows the best side of this difficult vintage."

"Cherry red color, garnet rim. Ripe fuit aroma, spicy, with character. Powerful on the palate, toasted, ripe tannins, long after taste."
"Orben creates a new wine concept based on old vineyards in Rioja Alavesa. 74 micro parcels of Tempranillo in the surroundings of Villabuena and Laguardia. Careful selection of grapes and the best technology get together in order to find the essence of the Tempranillo from the region, running away from the most traditional styles in the benefit of fruit, modernity, personality and elegance." - Importer
