Vega Sicilia 'Macan' Rioja 2012, Rioja, Spain

Rioja, Spain



94pts - Wine Enthusiast
"This young, massive Rioja smells of raspberry, plum, char and tar. The mouthfeel is chunky, rich and deep, with manageable tannins. Blackberry, mocha, char, clove and chocolate flavors announce generous oak, while the finish is spicy, peppery, toasty and ripe. Drink 2018–2034."
93pts - Vinous 

"Saturated ruby. Fresh dark berry, cherry, mocha and floral aromas are complicated by suggestions of cola and vanilla. Intense blackberry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors deepen slowly and pick up a sweet hint of mocha on the back half. Rich yet energetic, showing excellent clarity. The lively, emphatically fruity, impressively persistent finish is given shape and gentle grip by supple, harmonious tannins."
