Cvne Vina Real Rioja Reserva 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and reticent on the nose, this opens slowly to reveal a super fine shale and vanilla accented small cherry fruit. On the palate, this is tight but shows great richness and depth. The fruit is a wonderfully pure mix of raspberry and cherry pit, accented with touches of wood spice and asphalt. The finish shows building tannins that obscure a bit of detail, but this remains quite pure and elegant. Another wine that could use a few more years in the cellar to show its full potential, though this will be classically elegant and pure. 92pts

Sweet and soft on the nose, which offers up a captivating blend of raspberry jam, licorice, tar, leather and sandalwood. Soft, broad and supple on entry this delivers clear, bright red fruit framed by subtle tannins, which help add some drive and heft on the back end. The fruit shows excellent persistence on the finish; while this is a touch simple, it’s showing particularly well tonight and is a pleasure to drink. The funnest wine of the evening. 92 points

Corked, though one could sense the body and richness of the wine on the palate. A shame as I expect sound bottles should be excellent.

Richly fruited on the nose with notes of baked black cherries framed by hints of mint, dill and fennel, along with strong notes of tobacco and sweet medicinal spices. Downright opulent on entry, this is rich and powerful in the mouth with bright acids and polished tannins in perfect harmony. The core of red fruit shows excellent energy and cut, underlain as it is with mineral and umami notes. There’s a lovely hint of game on the finish here, along with an incipient cast of autumnal spice. Deep, precise and complete, this is a winner. 94 points

Corked to the extent that you couldn’t get anything out of it

A little lean and slightly herbal at first, this gained depth and complexity with air revealing layers of cherry, smoke, pickle barrel, smoked paprika and cigar box aromas. Really fresh and aromatic. Elegant and refined on the palate, with an early burst of sandalwood and cigar box, followed by a fine cherry pit note on the back end that drifted onto a long, slightly mineral and spiced finish. This has such a lovely texture, delicate, ethereal and refined. It did lack some fruit and perhaps a touch of depth, but it was still a treat. 91 points

Chalky, earthy and compact on the nose, this did gain complexity in the glass, adding dashes of spicy cherry fruit topped with hints of mint and dill over time. This had impeccable balance and gorgeous fruit that was certainly fading, leaving the wine a little austere in the mouth, but bright and aromatic, though it did not fare well in the glass. This thinned out with air, loosing its core of fruit and showing more medicinal and tarry notes with air. On its own, it probably would have been better received, but in the company revealed its weaknesses. 88 points

Up front truffle, mushroom and leather on the nose. Richly textured wine. Complex and layered. Continues to open into new flavors throughout the palate. Lots of dark berry. It really evolves wonderfully and changes. - Schreiner's Winers 7/9/10

Medium red. Ripe cherry and plum aromas are strongly influenced by vanillin oak and mocha. Sweet, toasty red berry flavors verge on jammy but are enlivened by zesty acidity. Fine-grained tannins add support to the long, sweet finish. The oak is pretty strong right now but I'll bet that it will be absorbed by the fruit with time in bottle.

CVNE Tinto Gran Reserva Vina Real 1996: Der besonders samtig wirkende Wein präsentiert sich im Glas in einem glänzenden Rubinrot. Er duftet fruchtig-würzig nach schwarzen und roten und Beerenfrüchten mit Anklängen von Leder, Vanille und Kokos. Am Gaumen schmeckt er nach fein gereifter Frucht und sehr ausgewogen und vielfältig. Er harmoniert besonders gut zu Fleischpasteten, mit Rindfleisch gefüllten Maispfannkuchen und würzigen Bratengerichten.Bitte eine Stunde vorher belüften.Weingut: CVNERegion: RiojaRebsorte: 95% Tempranillo, 5% GracianoInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,25 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja

Intriguing earthy, leafy aromas as well as a lot of roasted meat and berry fruit to the nose. Any high expectations, however, are lost on the palate, where it?s sour and scouring. Yes, there?s red cherry and rhubarb for the tart-fruit lovers, but the bet here is that most will find it starched out and not that pleasant to drink. Imported by Pasternak Wine Imports.
