Clean and bright. Deep cherry colour with purple glints. On the nose it is very complex. Excellent harmony: strawberry, blackberry and figs; some hints of milky aromas; the ageing results in a clean and new wood with toast, coffee, vanilla, leather and cocoa aromas. On the palate, powerful, extraordinary backbone and elegant. Sweet polished tannins perfectly balanced with spicy and fruity flavours. Smooth and lingering finish.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2008 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo that spent 14 months in French and American oak. Notes of wood smoke, espresso, leather, and assorted black fruits compose the nose of this elegant, spicy, well-balanced offering. Nicely concentrated and lengthy, it will provide enjoyment through 2020. (Jun 2011)
