Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Joven 2007
Our Crianza stands out for its pleasant fruit combined with light oxidation of the barrel, which contributes with agreeable notes of vainilla and tobacco, while underscoring very satisfying tannins that contribute structure. Its long finish invites one to continue enjoying it. The cherry-red colour and slightly orangey rim point to its stay in barrels, although not enough to denote oxidation, making it a very well-balanced wine.
Ruby Red. Rich Berry, light spice. Flavors of cherry, currant, leather, smoke and earth. Has a great tangy acidity. Aeration softens the wine nicely. A manly Rioja - simps and pansies beware! From IWC, 88 points: "(95% tempranillo, with graciano and mazuelo) Light, bright red. Smoky red berries and cherry on the nose, with hints of leather and cured meat. Spicy redcurrant and strawberry flavors are complemented by floral pastille and herbs, with silky tannins adding firmness. Gains weight with air and finishes with lingering cherry and blackberry flavors."
External Reviews for Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Joven
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.
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.
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.
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.
