Bodegas El Coto Tempranillo Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva 2006
Sour cherry flavors. Went great with meat. 87 pts.
This wine wasn't super exciting, but acceptable. It's like a blind date that just doesn't go well. 80/100
A value priced wine with good dark fruit, moderate tanin and acidity. Very drinkable now and unapologetically tasty with any dark meat or robust entree.
This wine is incredible. I would suck the planet dry of this wine if I could. Best red 2007 I ever had. Great work and thank you for the good times!
External Reviews for Bodegas El Coto Tempranillo Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva
This sleek red shows racy flavors of cherry, licorice and vanilla, as well as leaf and cola accents, with gentle tannins and bright acidity. Drink now through 2012.
This wine shows aromas of fresh, crushed red cherries and spices, with vanilla and oak hints. With a soft, long character in the mouth, the wine shows intense red fruit that combines the subtle strawberry and cherry aromas typical of Rioja's Tempranillo grape with the expressive vanilla-coconut aromas of the American oak barrels. It is the classic Rioja marriage of wine and wood. - Winery
88 Points-Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2008Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light
An oaky, modern-style wine with a staunch mocha and vanilla influence, but the fruit is ripe and rich enough to handle it. Spicy and grainy on the nose, with vanilla and resin seeping through. The palate remains woody but is full of berry flavors, while the omnipresent barrel influence carries onto the rich, ripe finish.
88 Points -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, July 2008 "Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light, gently sweet red fruit flavors are silky and smooth, with no obvious tannins or rough edges. Understated and nicely balanced, with good finishing lift and clarity. Fans of old-school Rioja should give this a spin."
