Bright, deep, ruby red. Aromas of ripe wild berries (blackberries
and red currants) to the nose. Fresh in the mouth, with clean
aromas of smoky wood well integrated into ripe fruit. Persistent,
"There is no Reserva or Gran Reserva in 2007 due to the average quality of the vintage so that fruit made its way in to the 2007 Crianza. It is 100% Tempranillo that spent 13 months in American oak. Aromas of cedar, tobacco, violets, black cherry, and blackberry inform the nose of this medium-bodied, spicy, nicely proportioned Rioja. It is a very good value for drinking over the next 4-5 years."
The Wine Advocate
Earthy & Spicy
Another nice red from Rioja, excellent with beef.
Smooth & Supple
Downed some pizza with this bottle of wine as I watched the Nationwide race. Dry tasting wine that had a nice finish. Not bitter tasting
