Having a second pour of Vina Eugenia Rioja, 2007 Reserve, 13.5%. See I told you I'd get the details.

On the first glass, it was very jammy to start. As the glass got air, the sweetness dissipated and some vegetal notes started coming out. Little bit of bell peppers in there, just enough to be interesting.

The 4th glass. This is actually getting enjoyable. Nice vegetable profile with some black pepper notes and a bit of tannic structure.
