Dusty and dry o the nose like a parched field with background notes of sweet oak, dried cherries , cocoa vanilla, and some green anise seed like spice. Light and bright on entry with a small wave of sweet fruit following directly behind the bright acidity. This is a perfect medium weight Crianza with a fine balance of red fruit hinting and raspberry and a classic oak underlay. A touch simple on the palate and showing fairly dominant oak induced spiciness on the moderately long finish. Elegant and refined, this is a rather safe, easy drinking Crianza. 86pts

This is a nice, easy sipping rose that will be great for the warmer weather. Lots of red berries on the nose and palate, with just a hint of dryness. Finish is very light.

This is a great super market wine...A good everyday wine. The reviews are spot on above...In Spain this is about a 4 euro wine and it is very classical in taste...slightly musky and rustic on the nose. If this is your first Spanish wine...it only gets better!

Importer notes:This wine is made from 100% Viura grapes grown in Rioja Alavesa, a subregion of Rioja with limestone-rich soils that contribute aromatic richness and elegance on the palate to its wines. The Blanco is made utilizing a cold pre-fermentation maceration for 12-24 hours to extract optimal color, aroma and texture from the grape skins. Then, there is clarification and fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tank for 15 days. Bottling occurs early in the next year. Tasting Notes: Pale gold-yellow with greenish hues, the wine is intensely aromatic, well balanced, with body and the fruit has a refreshing tart character. El Coto Blancos pleasant acidity combines perfectly with an exquisite aftertaste of flowers, fruit and fine herbs. Food Match: white meats, sushi, shellfish, scallops, salads, pork, fish, Antipasto

I like this wine, Plumey, a little oak, smooth, relatively soft tannins. A medium to mild finish but all in all a good wine for the price.

The 2007 vintage of El Cotos entry level Crianza is a blockbuster! This 100% Tempranillo shows layers of fresh raspberries, cherry, cedar and spice typical of a classically styled Rioja. This is all wrapped up in a vanilla and leather laiden package that is medium in body and sports a long, soft finish. Always a good value, and for 2007; a spectacular value! - Winery

The first act of dried spices and light, dusty red fruit aromas is honest and subdued. The palate brings good weight and lightly leafy, tomatoey accents to red cherry and raspberry flavors. Light, dry and a little stemmy on the finish. Standard but hinting at elegant.

Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light, gently sweet red fruit flavors are silky and smooth, with no obvious tannins or rough edges. Understated and nicely balanced, with good finishing lift and clarity. Fans of old-school Rioja should give this a spin.

This plump red has good stuffing, with just enough tannins for backbone. Offers plum, anise and mocha flavors, with a fresh, clean finish. Not showy, but balanced. Drink now through 2011.

El Coto 'Vina del Canonigo' Tinto 2007: Dieser junge und körperreicher Rotwein präsentiert ein facettenreiches Aromenspiel, welches sehr lebhaft, harmonisch und fruchtig wirkt. Ein Tempranillo, der schon jetzt sein Potential erkennen lässt.    Weingut: El CotoRegion: RiojaRebsorten: TempranilloInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,0 Vol.% Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja

An oaky, modern-style wine with a staunch mocha and vanilla influence, but the fruit is ripe and rich enough to handle it. Spicy and grainy on the nose, with vanilla and resin seeping through. The palate remains woody but is full of berry flavors, while the omnipresent barrel influence carries onto the rich, ripe finish.
