Museum Crianza Cigales 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Museum's 2008 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in French and American oak. It gives up a pleasing perfume of smoke, Asian spices, leather, mineral, and blackberry leading to a wine with an elegant personality, a firm structure, incipient complexity, and a lengthy finish. Give it 1-2 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2013 to 2018. (100% tempranillo): Deep ruby. Aromas of medicinal cherry and blackcurrant, plus a hint of vanilla. Modestly concentrated and a touch bitter, offering chewy red and dark fruit flavors that slowly open to show a peppery nuance. Finishes with good clarity and liftbut I would have liked more sweetness. ** Only 4 in Stock **

Bodegas Museum Real is a wine produced in the Cigales region of Spain, just north of Ribero del Duero. The vineyard was stumbled upon by Grupo Baron de Ley in the late 1990s as they were searching for quality growing regions outside of Ribero del Duero. What they found was an astonishing 100+ acres of old vine Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo), ranging between 60 and 100+ years old. These low yield vines produce amazing, balanced and concentrated fruit, helped along by dramatic diurnal temperature differences that even out grape ripening. The result is a powerful, structured wine with great depth and longevity.  Read less
