Tasting Notes

Bottle of Rioja Reserva Bodega Akutain 2012

From The Whisky Exchange

  • There is a lot of dense black fruit with an earthy note and some sweet liquorice and bright florals. The palate is stunning – intense yet elegant, the oak is in perfect harmony with the fruit and although the wine is concentrated, there is still freshness and vitality.
