Senorio de P. Pecina Rioja Crianza O 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...produced from vines that are thirty years of age, and it is aged two years in older American barrels and then two years in bottle prior to release... excellent wine and a superb value, wafting from the glass in a lovely and still quite youthful blend of cherries, red plums, chocolate, a nice framing of American wood (with attendant notes of toasted coconut), a fine base of soil and a bit of fresh nutmeg in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and complex, with a touch of tannin, fine focus and grip and a long, tangy and complex finish. Lovely juice. 2014-2035. (May/Jun 2014)

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.

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.

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.

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.
