El Coto de Rioja Rioja Red Crianza 2010
Editorial Reviews for El Coto de Rioja Rioja Red Crianza
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 de Rioja Rioja Red Crianza
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.
The 2010 El Coto Rosado is made up of equal parts of Garnacha and Tempranillo fermented and aged in stainless steel. This medium pink offering delivers rose petal and strawberry aromas and flavors with a touch of clove and cinnamon added to the mix. It is a dry, savory, tasty Rose for drinking over the next 12ndash;18 months. It, too, is a solid value.
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.
Crisp, tight and bright, this is a vivacious young Rioja roasdo; simple, but spicy and juicy with white cherry fruit.
Mittleres rubinrot mit granatroten Reflexen. Fruchtbetonte Aromatik nach Brombeeren und Zwetschgenkompott. Dezente Eichenholznote. Abgerundeter Geschmack mit langen Ausklang.
Cherry, black tea, herbal and light vanilla flavors mingle in this traditional red. Supple, with enough tannins for grip. Spicy finish. Drink now.
