El Coto Crianza Tempranillo Rioja 2010
Editorial Reviews for El Coto Crianza Tempranillo Rioja
Nicely fruity with notes of watermelon and watermelon rind, with hints of banana, grapefruit and flowers. Zesty on entry and nicely light bodied with a good core of red cherry fruit. There’s a touch of mineral, adding some complexity on the palate and a lovely, almost stemmy, herbal tone on the back end. This is a bit simple but very friendly with a nicely fruity finish. 86pts
Slightly emollient on the nose with a bit of cream and apricot. Honey flavors with a bit of tea leaf and a light finish. Really interesting wine, but loses half a point for some slight plastic on the nose.
Funky tropical aromas w/ basil, and tomatoes and green peppers on the mouth. Nice mouthfeel, very savory.
Amazingly versatile little wine we have here. I can't think of something this wouldn't go with. I want to buy cases of this and leave them at my pretend summer Hamptons house.
Bubblegum and cherry slush puppie flavors with a slight vegetal kick. Unlike any other rose I have had. As always I paired this rose with middle eastern food. In this case it was a ground lamb pita. yummmy.
Red berries, mostly strawberry, on the nose. Dry on the palate. Bought it for $10 - good deal. 90 pts.
Very simple and basic rose with a great price point....A typical Spanish rose...
Good overall wine!!! El coto is the go to super market wine! Price is great! wine is good!
External Reviews for El Coto Crianza Tempranillo Rioja
Always a consistent rose from Rioja. The nose is candied but fresh and nice, while the palate is full but standard, with plump melon, citrus and raspberry flavors. Finishes short but sturdy, with balance and good acidity.
This is lovely, dry rose! A beautiful cherry color, and flavors of strawberry, raspberry with a squeeze of lemon, frame this juicy, crisp wine. It is a blend of Grenache and Tempranillo that was harvested in the highest altitude of the vineyards in the Alavesa District. Enjoy this delectable wine with hot dogs, pasta salad or BLTs.
Crisp, tight and bright, this is a vivacious young Rioja roasdo; simple, but spicy and juicy with white cherry fruit.
Fresh as can be, with pure aromas of nectarine and cherry blossoms. The palate is light but refreshing and lithe, with semisweet, punchy flavors of orange, peach and pith. Finishes clean and light in the classic, subtle, utilitarian way that a good Rioja rosé should.
