Wine tasting notes

Bright cherry-red in colour, with an intense nose of ripe red fruits entwined with liquorice, spice, and a toasty-smoky component. The palate is full of sweet concentrated strawberries with a lick of vanilla. This is an elegant Rioja made in a modern fresh and fruity style

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2009) - 89 pts

Wine Advocate #210. Dec 2013. Reviewer : Luis Guteierrez. The 2009 Crianza is pure Tempranillo from Briones grown on clay-rich soils and has the treatment of a superior wine. It ferments in oak vats and ages in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for 16 months with a further half year resting in bottle before being sold. It displays discrete aromas of red and black fruit, some leather, licorice, Chinese ink and smoke notes. The medium-bodied palate is clean, with fresh flavors of red currants and spices. Very drinkable. Drink 2014-2017.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2011) - 86 pts

By Josh Raynolds. Bright ruby-red. Cherry, raspberry and spicy oak aromas are complemented by pipe tobacco and rose. A sweet, sappy midweight that offers bright red berry flavors but betrays a slight dry edge in the mid-palate. Gently chewy tannins add grip to the brisk but somewhat hard-edged finish.


Wine Spectator (2011) - 85 pts

Black cherry, licorice and toast flavors mingle in this broad red. Light, firm tannins and moderate acidity impart structure, with a clean finish.
