Bodegas Dinastia Vivanco Rioja Seleccion de Familia Crianza 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Wine & Spirits: Soft and silken, this is a Burgundian style of Rioja, a rich, earthy wine with musky funk to its cherry flavors. There's tension in the acidity, the wine lasting on a spicy, rooty finish. An old-fashioned Rioja for braised meats. (Dec 2013)

Dinastia Vivanco:
The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: “he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink”.

This generous red offers ripe plum and chocolate flavors, with toast and tarry notes set on a plump frame. Delivers well-integrated tannins and a smoky finish. Drink now through 2017. TM - Wine Spectator Magazine 88 PointsThe 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. - Robert Parker 88 Points
