Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 87/100
A rustic, tannic red wine with aromas of charred black fruit, toast, oak and smoke. Firm grip on the palate. Pair with hearty meat dishes.
Food pairings: Greek marinated lamb ribs on the grill, souvlaki, spanakopita pie.
Luscious Lamb Wine

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:|
CVNE stands for: Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España. This is an historic wine company with some very bold and delicious wines from Rioja. The reason to go after this little beauty is because it has tremendous value.
This Crianza (pronounced cree-AN-tha) is built mainly around Tempranillo with a dash of Grenacje and Mazuelo.
It has some rustic aromas to it, but it is all about the fruit you can coax out of this wine. When yo first open it, it has loads of tobacco, loam, leaves, mushroom, cherry, and red licorice. After it breathes, some plum, mulberry, and coconut come out.
On the palate it is aggressive, but that is just its youth showing throught. Not many wines on the marlet are built like this guy. Built to withstand some aging. Most wines are built to be enjotlyed right now. Especially from Spain, where wines can have had loads of cellar time already.
Once it breathes, there is a lot more fresh fruit jumping out at you. Lots of cherry and mulberry. Plum, coffee, coconut on the finish.
Buy a few, drink one now and tuck the rest away. This one would be fascinating to watch evolve. A great little Rioja with a lot of spunk. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
Put it with some lamb burgers or bbq sausage.

Gorgeous aromas and flavours of cherry jam, spice, tobacco, anise and Aussie red licorice. Plum skin and cocoa nib comes out on the finish. 90 Points
|CVNE is a acronym for Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España. This is an historic wine company with some very bold and delicious wines from Rioja. This rich and robust red blend is mainly Tempranillo with a dash of Grenache and Mazuelo. Look for mushroom, ripe dark cherries, tobacco leaf and spicy flavours on the palate. Delicious now. - Community Wine Reviews|
