Eder Crianza 2005
Editorial Reviews for Eder Crianza
An additional bit of age has given this a lovely array of aromatics that incorporates the raspberry and herbs of it’s younger brother into a more complex, if less intense array of scents that includes notes nutty oak, leather, soil, tea, hibiscus and sassafras. Broad and soft in the mouth this is ready to drink with lush red fruit tones, velvety tannins and lovely nuances of cherry cola. The backend lacks some of the thrust of the 2007 version but the acids support the ripe fruit through to the long finish with lingering notes of mocha, licorice and medicinal cherry. This is quite an intense Crianza. 89pts
aromas mixed with various berry fruit and wildly some paint chips, varnish-like aromas with a fresh flavorful palate filled with blackberries, red plums and some cherries, a little pepper, and a tinge of wood-like attributes. I liked the Eder 2007 better.
Excellent wine from Rioja. Great balance of fruit and body
One of the best Crianza's I have ever tried coming out of Rioja......This is one of my favorites!
