Badass Crianza that has plenty of grip and structure. Concentrated and built for 5-7 years’ cellaring. The antithesis of the lactic, pruny, brownish and overly oaked Rioja that seems to be everywhere.

Tempranillo, Ruby color with aromas of berry fruits and sweet spicy notes. Aged in French and American Oak, the palate showed complex flavors of sweet ripe cherry and blueberry fruit, medium acidity, soft tannins and slight tangy smoky cedar finish. Tremendous Spanish wine value. Tasting Sample.

I’m finding this to be very elegant and lively with its spicy, red-fruited expression of pure Tempranillo. I love this style and the price point.

Well balanced smooth red wine, a bit spicy and smokey. My name is Marta and I am the queen.

Good the 2nd day, too. Nice and dry but still with some earthiness

I enjoyed this #crianza #rioja in a restaurant with a good wine list. A bit less earthy, more stone fruit flavors - accompanied braised beef short ribs nicely.

Balanced and smooth, fine tannin level. Terrific pair with filet mignon and mushrooms
