As this vintage is currently out of stock, you may like to check out this alternative: We love this young (Crianza) wine from the Spanish wine region of Rioja. It is full of flavour and really easy to drink! As a relatively young Rioja winery, they combine tradition with modern production methods, ensuring that their wines are of consistently good quality. The Crianza is the youngest of their wines and is aged for 12 months. It is lively, clean and poised, with elegant aromas of spicy fruit on the nose and a powerful and fleshy palate.

Deep ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by tobacco and candied rose. Smooth and open-knit, offering plush dark berry and smoked meat flavors with a hint of cocoa powder. Clings nicely on the finish, with the cherry and smoke notes repeating. There's just enough wildness here to appeal to fans of old-school Rioja.
