Legaris Crianza 2015

Member Review by LarryFitz:

This is a dark rich wine with a nice fruity aroma. Bold black berry flavor, that hold it flavor right to the finish. The tannin on the finish were present but smooth. We had this with some spice chili that my wife prepared, I wondered how this wine would match with the hot and spice dish. This wine stood it ground, it's flavor came through the spices in the chili nicely, even mellowing out the chili a little. One spoon of chili followed by a sip of wine (alright , maybe a gulp), then some more chili. It was great. Two years ago a reviewed a 2008 vintage of Los Dos, but I was not impressed and stated I would not purchase again. I am happy that I forgot about that review. I would buy the 2010 vintage again.

Legaris:
Legaris is silence and seclusion, agreement between the human and the natural which transcends in one point. Current human knowledge, the faithful fruit of the earth, gives Legaris the pride, the desire and the dream of all wines: the essence of a good wine.

classic old world Garnacha dark-fruit-forward flavor profile with a long, dry, spicy Syrah finish. would be excellent with something like carolina-style smoked pulled pork with a vinegar slaw topping (with cilantro, I think). Keep it at proper temp, as Garnacha can get cloying if let get too warm and Syrah loses dimension when too cold.

a full bodied, hearty wine filled with darkness - dark fruit, dark berries, dark chocolate/cocoa, a tinge of dustiness and earth

Colour is a dark slightly brickish garnet that is fairly translucent. Nose has raisiny, black cherry, oak forest floor, intimation of plum. Maybe a smidge of coffee in there, and a soupçon of cola. Body is stretching into the medium range. Mid palate has some decent balance and the acid is just right. Finish has moderate length and intensity. It is showing as a little more old worldy than many of the other Spaniards I've tried recently. It is definitely opening up in the decanter and impressing me more with time in the air. I would take a guess that it's probably a little past it's peak at the moment so if you've got some, or are going to buy some, don't sit on it too long. I liked the stoniness that comes in on the transition from midpalate to finish. It seems to like teaming up with a sharp cheddar but medium might be better suited. If you slow down and listen to what this wine is saying you'll appreciate it's candor. It's not shouting out a loud yawp over the rooftops but rather holding a civilized and pleasant conversation that you have to listen carefully to in order to get the message. I wouldn't call it a great value, I think at the moment it's resting on it's 90 point spectator score laurels like an balding middle aged man looking back at his high school football glory. Buy it if you can get a good deal but $30 Canadian seems a little much.

A round, fruit-foward palate of cherries and blackberries carries through to a refined, lengthy finish.

An excellent Spanish red from the Campo de Borja region, made from a blend of old-vine Garnacha and a bit of Syrah. Dark, fresh and – no surprise – deliciously "grapey" on the palate. Light, silky tannins make for a very pleasant finish. Try it with grilled fare for a failsafe pairing.

Deep garnet red with hues of the same colour. Highly aromatic on the nose with dominant notes of well balanced black fruits and complex notes from aging in oak. A round mouthfeel, well structured with body and a long tasty finish.

Ribera del Duero is a very prestigious appellation in Northern Spain. Many small, very high quality wineries are located there. Legaris is a fairly new entry with an ultra-modern winery. They have two estate vineyards totaling around 225 acres where the grow Tinta Fina aka Tempranillo. This Crianza is 100% Tinta Fina that’s been aged 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This is a full bodied red with ripe red fruit and a bold spicy veneer. Let this open up for 20 minute in your decanter. Should drink beautifully over the next 6-8 years.
