El Coto de Rioja Rioja Red Crianza 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 El Coto Crianza should be a crowd-pleaser, with its clean notes of fresh fruit, just enough spice and a hint of licorice and its polished palate with good freshness. It’s extremely easy to drink and a little simple." -Wine Advocate

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.

El Coto de Rioja, located in Oyón, was founded in 1970 by a group of winemakers committed to creating a new type of Rioja. Its first bottling was released in 1975. Today, El Coto is the leading brand in Spain and among the top-selling Spanish wines in Europe. Five-hundred hectares of estate vineyards are located in La Rioja Alta’s village of Cenicero, near the east bank of the Najerilla River, a tributary of the Ebro. Facing northwest, vineyard soils are mostly ferric clay, sand and limestone, which contribute structure, power and elegant minerality, respectively, to the wines. The recently incorporated Los Almendros estate, shared with Barón de Ley, adds an additional 300 hectares of vineyards to the impressive estate holdings. Additional grapes are sourced from 2,000 hectares in Rioja Alavesa. Here, limestone, clay and stony soils make aromatic, expressive wines with great finesse. With the exception of “Coto Real” Reserva and "Coto de Imaz" Gran Reserva, all reds are aged in new American oak barrels, the classic Rioja marriage of wine and wood. Their seductive cigar box, spice and herbal aromas and silky red fruit flavors are the essence of fine traditional Rioja. - Winery

Cherry, black tea, herbal and light vanilla flavors mingle in this traditional red. Supple, with enough tannins for grip. Spicy finish. Drink now.

Crisp, tight and bright, this is a vivacious young Rioja roasdo; simple, but spicy and juicy with white cherry fruit.
