Condado de Haza Crianza # 2006
92 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Vivid raspberry, blackberry, anise and floral scents are fresh and pure. Juicy dark berry flavors are complemented by succulent herbs and dark chocolate, becoming sweeter with air. Leaves strong floral pastille and berry liqueur notes behind, finishing with excellent cut and precision. Very nicely focused wine.
Editorial Reviews for Condado de Haza Crianza #
This is quite bretty on the nose with tons of barnyardy complexity and notes of old wood and flowers. On the palate this is fresh with a pleasantly subtle bitterness to the cherry fruit. It’s easy styled and well balanced with black cherry and spice tones that drift from the mid-palate to the moderately long finish. The brett on the nose is going to be a huge turnoff to many. 87pts
Nice dark colour with lot of fruity aromas, coffee, tobacco and spicies, with vanila. Very well balanced but young with too liight body.
Smoky tasting, nice spanish wine. Wife and I both liked it but I would choose other wines at $29 while she would buy again at this price.
This is a bit closed initially. Nose is tight and muted at first as is the taste, though you can tell it will open shortly. Once it gets some air, deep cherry and cocoa on the nose. Palate opens to berries, a little leather and supple tannins. Nice wine, not overly complex it seems, but has nice burst of acidity at the end that really makes this a good food wine...try roast poultry or pork.
Very well balance, I was expecting less, but this is a great wine, very impressed.
