Elegant, sophisticated Rioja, packed with blackberries and scented with cedar, leather and spice.

Only the right blending is appropriate to age for a long period in oak cask in order to gain longevity with a slow and fulfililling evolution in the bottle. 20 months of ageing in American oak casks a lot of which is 2nd or 3rd fill to allow the fruit to talk.

With a long history Ramon Bilbao adopt a philosophy centred on giving our wines their own personal expression of Rioja Alta, which they do by revisioning classic ingredients like Tempranillo and American Wood. The aim is to define a fresh and elegant style, producing fruitier wines, in which the character of the grape is fully expressed, rather than hidden behind an excess of wood.
