- 2004 Bodegas Roda Rioja Cirsion – Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (4/25/2006)
Blackish purple in color. The nose has a jammy black raspberry quality with smoke, vanilla, and cherry flavors. Big drying tannins in the mouth that seem to take away from any fruit that is there. Spicey though hollow on the finish. Maybe needs to open, maybe is lacking in fruit. Too early to tell.
