Cherry colored, dark red wine with a high
half-layer, black fruit and compote fruit aromas,
spicy, pastry, milky and long in the nose, long lasting
to the palate.
"Baigorri’s red wines begin with the 2005 Crianza made up of 100% Tempranillo aged for 12 months in new French oak. It sports a nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry that lead to a stylish, elegant Rioja with the balance, structure, and length to drink well through 2020. "
The Wine Advocate
"A fresh and appealing style of Rioja with aromas of dried cheese, dill, cedar, tobacco and kirsch. The palate has a pleasing juiciness and layered flavors of cherry, rapsberry and vanilla. Mocha and coffee flavors accent the well-oaked finish, and overall this is pure and kicking, but not too hefty or extracted. Drink now through 2013. "
