Food Pairings for Codice
External Reviews for Codice
This wine (a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Grenache) reveals loads of fruit, a medium-bodied, berry, earthy, spicy mid-palate, good glycerin, and a supple-textured, lush finish. This wine should drink well for 2-3 years, and if more aromatics develop, it may merit a score 1-2 points higher.
This is an easy drinker - not an intellectual, "serious" wine - but it displays more tasty ripe fruit than many more pretentious offerings. The nose is a blender-mix of ripe berry, cocoa, banana hints and smoky, toasty oak. The palate is flavorful, with ripe but dry strawberry and raspberry fruit. It's fairly light in weight and closes with a nice berry-spice fade - a quaff with class.
Soft, rich, lush fruits mixed with spicy oak and mocha flavors. Medium-bodied - a solid intro to Rioja.
The 2001 Codice Tinto (a 100% Tempranillo cuvee from high altitude vineyards) is aged six months in 1-3 year old American oak barrels. This dense example reveals delicious black cherry fruit intermixed with sandalwood, pepper, dried herb, and spice characteristics. With fine density, a sweet, plush mid-palate, and a long, elegant, concentrated finish, it will drink well for 1-3 years. Ten thousand cases of this beauty made it into the United States. An outrageous value.
Soft and round though a bit light, this red offers cherry, plum and sweet vanilla flavors, with gentle tannins and a spicy finish. Drink now.
