Dense, dark ruby colour. Refined and complex bouquet with a hint of cherry, vanilla and soft toasted notes. Balanced in the mouth where silky, well-defined tannins combine with luscious flavours to reveal a pleasant fullness. This Reserva follows firmly in the footsteps of the previous 2012 vintage that won excellent awards.
The wine has spent 18 months in American oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle before release. Intense aromas on the nose coupled with spicy notes from the ageing process in American oak. Smooth in the mouth, with well integrated acidity, highlights of redcurrant, liquorish, and vanilla with smoky notes. Long, complex aftertaste.
A blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha. The wine has spent 12 months in 50% French and 50% American oak barrels.
A tawny colour in appearance of medium intensity.
Its aroma stands out for its red fruits, prune and licorice scents wrapped in pastry, black pepper and vanilla hints from the oak barrel.
On the palate its round, with pleasant structure, balanced acidity and elegant tannins giving fruit in liqueur hints in the aftertaste.
Soft aromas of black fruits and sweet spice form the basis for this famous Ribera red, liquorice and hints of coca edge around the more powerful fruit notes. On the palate the well balanced oak maturation is very well defined, complementing rather than overwhelming the fruit. A persistent finish and silky tannins highlight the quality wine making of this Crianza.
