Senorio de P. Pecina Rioja Crianza 2012

Member Review by listmanj:

This wine is classic Rioja that in 2014 still needs aeration to get the full earthy and leathery tones out of it. Not for casual sipping but perfect with red sauces and fat to be really appreciated. Bargain in my mind.

Aged in used American oak for 2 years and hand racked 4 times during that aging (every 6 months). The wine then ages for at least an additional 2 years in bottle before being released on the market. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.This is the flagship wine of the estate. The Crianza is an amazing example of the complexity, elegance and structure of great traditionally made Rioja.

The 2009 Senorio de P. Pecina Crianza feels much older and has the profile of old-time traditional Rioja, with notes of tobacco, leather, camphor, raw meat, incense and a core of macerated cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows great acidity (especially for a warm vintage), clean flavors and enough persistence. Highly recommended for fans of old-time Rioja at a great price. Drink 2014–2016.

The 2007 Senorio de P Pecina Crianza has a red cherry and orange rind-scented bouquet with a hint of tobacco creeping in with aeration. The palate is nicely balanced, with simple, rounded, cherry and strawberry fruit, which leads to a conservative, classic, leather-tinged finish. This is a competent modern Crianza. Drink now–2016.

Super-rustic and traditional, with tart cranberry and earth notes prominent. Iodine, mushroom and herb influence round out the complex palate. Medium-bodied and loaded with so many layers, you definitely taste something new with every sip. Drink this with herb-crusted lamb or pork loin.

A beautiful example of a traditional Rioja, Peciña’s Crianza sees two years of of used American oak aging before being bottled. Dried berries, autumn leaves, tobacco and a hint of sweet leather flavors seamlessly roll across the palate.

Lean, spicy and leathery, this is a red for people who like the funkier side of Rioja and don’t mind a bit of Brett. The finish is dry and peppery, ready for roast lamb.
