Artadi Vina El Pison 2013
"There is always something magnetic about the nose of this exceptional wine, and the 2013 Vi–a El Pis—n, even though it feels young and primary, developed a myriad of nuances like none of the other bottlings from Artadi. There are flowers, herbs, and peppercorns, orange peel, notes of sour cherries, balsamic hints, a minty touch, bay leaf perhaps... The palate shows the strictness of 2013, a little austere, with cold tannins, acidity that makes you salivate and a very long finish, but still quite sharp. There is a very good balance and elegance here, and stuffing to slowly develop for a long time in bottle. It's modern and a little oaky, but exceptionally good, and if you have the patience it will turn into a beautiful bottle that will scream RIOJA!!!!"
