Rioja Vega S. A. Tempranillo Blend Rioja Crianza 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Careful ageing for twelve months in oak casks, followed by at least a further six months in the bottle. The result is a complex wine, rich in aromas and flavours. Clean, bright ruby red with aromas of vanilla, toast and spices. Well-structured, meaty and balanced in the mouth.

darker, funkier tempranillo with peppers, mushrooms characteristics combined with baked berry fruit, a little funky which I enjoy

Good balance of fruit, minerality, earth, and spice. Blackberry/blueberry/plum/rhubarb, some dark chocolate and toasty vanilla. Cola spices. Ole!

Rich pepper in the taste. Be careful because if you dont bob and weave away from this finish it may knock you out. Stiff and straight at you. Medium tannins. Nose is slightly flamboyant with notes of cigar and a bit ashy with an overtone of sexy black fruit.

The nose extends to strawberries, raspberries combined with black pepper and little nuances of hot spices. the palate has a light acidity, delicate in nature with nice red fruit components, and the raspberry and black pepper notes are prevalent as well carrying throughout

Stinky barnyard nose that follows thru into the taste, lots of earth, both obscure the fruit flavors, seemed a bit flabby lacking in both acidity and tannins. A definite pass.

    <p>Expect a medium-bodied, silky smooth wine out of the Rioja Vega Crianza. This wine pairs great with foul and red meat, due to its flavor of dark berry fruit and mellow, enjoyable tannins.&nbsp;</p>
