Bodegas Fernández de Piérola Rioja Crianza 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very complex on the nose with layers of tobacco, crème caramel, white pepper, cardamom, dried raspberries, old tea, dried spices and a nice low note of cinnamon-dusted dried fruit. There’s plenty of fruit on the palate with good depth. This is lively in the mouth with peppery spice accents. High toned and elegant, this is traditionally styled with a well integrated structure that turns really bright and nicely vibrant on the palate and extends through a long zesty, salted plum fruit and peppery finish. 91pts

I found this wine to be rich fruit, this elegant tendency towards raspberry tanginess, very smooth, could be by itself or pairing with chesses or food.
