Cvne Vina Real Gran Reserva 2010

Member Review by larrythek:

It's smooth and its soft - surprisingly so for an "old-fashioned" Rioja house like CVNE. Though it's got some decent fruit with earthy/woody accents, it's just not as flavorful as one might hope for a Reserva from a very good year like '04. Moderate body; dry; good structure. But somehow, it doesn't all had up. At the list price ($30-$32) it's a bad value. Even at my local store's "sale" net price of $19, it's not great.

CVNE Tinto Reserva Vina Real 2004: Dieser wundervolle Reserva glänzt im Glas rubinrot und verströmt einen würzigen Duft von roten Beeren, man spürt Noten von Vanille, Leder und rauchige Aromen. Die fein gereifte Frucht lässt diesen Rotwein sehr ausgewogen wirken.Laut Gesetz muss ein Reserva mehr als 18 Monate im Barrique reifen und danach weitere 24 Monate auf Flasche, bevor er zum Verkauf angeboten werden darf.Dieser Reserva ist nun besonders zu würzigen Bratengerichten, Fleischpasteten oder mit Rindfleisch gefüllten Maispfannkuchen zu empfehlen.    Weingut: CVNE (Compania Vinicola del Norte de España)Region: RiojaRebsorte: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo Inhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,75 Vol.% Säuregehalt: 6 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 °CLagerfähigkeit: 7-10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja

Deep Ruby and cherry red, with the lightest hint of a terracotta edge. Good intensity on thenose, with ripe autumn fruits, warm spices and elegant toasty oak. The palate is rich,warming and velvet, with good acidity and noble tannin. The vanilla from the oak isbeautifully married with the raspberry fruit of the Tempranillo producing a fine, rich,complex palate and length of finish. The wine is balanced now, but has potential toimprove
