|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This Crianza Rioja is a luscious blend of Garnacha (Grenache), Graciano, and Tempranillo varietals. Its tannins have softened nicely, and this wine is definitely medium bodied. With a distinct medium ruby colour, this developing wine's bouquet is full of bright cherry, raspberry, charred wood, and cinnamon. The palate holds an interesting blend of spices and red fruits. Well-balanced, this Rioja from Spain has potential to age another 2 years, and was aged in American and French oak. Never had a Rioja? For the price, this is a great entry-level wine.
