The 2014 Bodegas Manzanos Siglo Rioja Reserva stands out for its red fruits, prune, and licorice scents wrapped in pastry, black pepper, and vanilla hints from the oak barrel. On the palate, it is round with pleasant structure, balanced acidity, and elegant tannins giving fruit in liqueur hints in the aftertaste.

"Earthy plum and berry aromas are on the soft side, while this feels creamy and slightly raisiny, with grabby tannins. Oaky milk chocolate notes blend with herbal red plum and berry flavors in front of a grabby finish where a chocolate flavor rises to the fore." -MS, 5/1/19
