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.

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.

Only slightly reedy and sharp on the nose. After that, the wine shows nice fruit and balance throughout. There are snappy cherry and raspberry flavors, and the finish offers proper finality in the form of light oak and cleansing acidity. Drink now for an easy taste of Rioja.

100% Tempranillo; shows dark red with rich strawberry and raspberry notes finishing with a vanillin softness. A perfect partner to roasted meats and stews.

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.

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
