Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

Nose has spicy cherry, tanned leather, juiced raspberry-blackberry, cigar box, cocoa nibs, exceptional.

Palate has blackberry reduction, ripe cherry mash, moist leather, cedar shavings, light mocha, nice acidity and dissipating tannins are gentle, long finish.

We've been enjoying these Heredia crianzas for many years, but they do need time to settle in and we're still drinking these too young, but damn they are guilty pleasures.

Decanted 2+hrs, drink now or enjoy over the next 4-6 years without concern.

$22, yes I know that reads like a crazy price, because it is, only patience is required!

Aging incredibly well. This is a more new-world style of #rioja but it is not over-extracted or overly-ripe or sweet. It has high ripe tannins and delightful acidity and tertiaries. — 3 months ago

Check out @Severn Goodwin‘s review of the 2013 as my impressions of the 2014 are the same. Simply an excellent value #rioja. — 10 months ago

Yes, great QPR, need to see if this vintage arrived at my Costco. 👍

I got this earlier in the summer and just got around to opening today to drink with spinach pesto pappardelle. The value champions at Costco seem to get discovered and sell out quickly.

Rich, bramble-fruit laden #rioja #reserva, think 2012 was a pretty good year for this label. — a year ago

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Classic #rioja #riserva - so much forest floor, earth, leather on the nose, medium light body, features typically shy fruit and backbone of acidity. Tannins are light. More fruit concentration would be nice but honestly I have not found a better value for the #oldworldstyle wine lover than this Costco bottle for $6.99. — a year ago
