    Rayos Uva is Olivier’s version of a Bourgogne Rouge, sourced from fruit grown in the sandy, gravelly and alluvial soils of Rioja Baja. Juicy and youthful, with notes of black cherry, crushed raspberry, red currant, cedar, and toasted tobacco. This wine is fruity and floral with subtle reduction, and lightened with a stony minerality. Tannins are long and lightly gritty, carrying this to a warm spiced finish. Rayos Uva is as fresh, pure, and vibrant as Rioja can be!
