Core C3 Tempranillo 2006
Editorial Reviews for Core C3 Tempranillo
Spicy and sweet smelling with notes of ginger, apricot and sassafras dominating at first then gaining complexity with hints of raw beef and vanilla accenting the cranberry fruit. This gains a rather distinctive note of mace and allspice berries with further airing. A bit flat on the attack but this is followed up by zesty, red apple acids, and lots of herbal and spicy background notes that are well knit into the plush texture The tannins are soft and add to the juicy appeal of the fruit which offers some tangerine and anonymous, dark red tones. Finishes cleanly with a touch of heat but not much complexity. 88pts
Light with a dark sweetness. Luscious dry finish.
Intensely floral nose, with peaches and grape juice - very unlike a typical red. Lighter bodied, a smooth, floral finish with blueberries and raspberries on the finish. Light, and ultra fruity.
Ruby colored wine, with cherries and smoke aromas and flavors.
