Campo Viejo Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 2011
Pale yellow with greenish glints, very clear and bright. The wine must be left in the glass for a few moments in order let it open and show its complexity. Initially the fruity character highlights, specially this vintage, enhancing the green apple and the pear, giving way to that floral side, with white blossom such as magnolia and acacia, with subtle notes of honey, some spice, a slight toasting.
Juicy rioja. Medium to light body red with a predominant tempranillo/grenache blend (muceunda \/ or similar makes up the rest). Ripe cherry and plum with hints of vanilla. Decent everyday red. $15 cdn.
From Craig and Katherine Ammons for my 50th birthday. Pretty tasty
High tannin - oaky.
