Bodegas Campillo Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva Especial 2001
Bright red fruit aromas, more earthy and dry flavors, a bit of fresh acidity as it finishes livens up the wine.
fresh juicy red cherry strawberry fruit characteristics, leaning forward with the fruit with bright acidity, but there is still an earthiness on the nose which makes it a bit different.
Vibrant dark cherries on the nose. Medium bodied and complex with a spiciness that builds and finishes with strong super-dry tannins. Really wonderful rioja.
External Reviews for Bodegas Campillo Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva Especial
Gran Reserva 1994 - 91 points, International Wine Cellar/ Deep red. Strikingly complex nose displays sexy red berry, cherry preserve, vanilla bean and cigar box aromas. A suave, spicy quality arrives with air and carries onto the palate, adding complexity to the sweet raspberry and cherry flavors. Silky tannins add focus to a long, intriguingly spicy finish.
Gran Reserva 1994 - 92 points, Wine Advocate/ Medium ruby with a classy nose of cedar and vanilla, red and black fruits. On the palate this elegant wine is complete and seamless with sweet fruit and complexity of flavor. Perhaps this should not be surprising because 1994 was an outstanding vintage in Rioja (the best before 2001) and Campillo was able to take advantage.
Intensive rubinrote Farbe In der Nase komplexes Bouquet. Im Gaumen schöne Mischung von Frucht- und Holzaromen. Ein eleganter Wein mit seidenweichen Taninen. Ausbau während min. 22 Monaten in französichen-und amerikanischen Eichenfässern.
Gran Reserva 1994 - 93 Points, Wine & Spirits/ Faustino completed this estate vineyard and winery project in 1990, on 124 acres in Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa. Fragrant dried cherry flavors race through this lean gran reserva, embracing the tannins in silk. Scents of game and spice last along with the fruit, formidable for such a light and airy wine. The flavors are substantial enough to match chorizo, or braised beef cheeks.
