A good wine and a great value; a bit low on acidity for my taste but fine tannins, bold drark fruit and a spicy finish make this an enjoyable wine. I recommend it.

This is one of the best wines I've had so far. Old World-style, not a fruit bomb. There is fruit, but it is woven seamlessly into the whole. This wine was a pleasure to discover. You're not going to get a whole menagerie of extra flavors, like horses, cows and wet sheep, or asparagus, bell peppers or a cabinet full of spices, but what was there just works together so nicely...

It's drinkable, that's about all I can say for it.

Garnet ruby red with brick coloured rim. It blends aromas of ripe berries with those of vanilla. A rounded wine, full of flavour.

External Review

Campo Viejo Crianza 2006 is a thin to medium-bodied wine made from Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo grapes. Not a lot of fruit coming through on the nose, masked by oak/leather and a nice earthiness that comes across as mushroomy. A bit peppery on the initial attack with underlying strawberry flavor coming through.

"We designed the winery ageing room in dark colours with indirect light, prioritising a dark, restful atmosphere. I wanted to imprint this character on Campo Viejo Crianza and elaborate a wine which can be defined in two words: velvety and elegant." -Elena Adell, Campo Viejo Winemaker

Tasting Notes:

One of the stalwarts of old-school Rioja, Campo Viejo’s Reserva shows a mushroomy, toasty, and forest floor nose, and rather than a big and lush fruit basket of aromas, this has red cherries and currants, as well as darker cherries and plums. The mouth is round, almost lush, though tartness (even citrus!) and stoniness garner just as much attention as the riper fruits. The finish has length and toasted mushrooms.

Deep ruby red, with aromas of dark berries and vanilla. Velvety- smooth and elegant. Ideal to accompany red and white meat, roasts and cheese.

10000 produced.

Notes: 18 Months in French & American Oak
