Vina Palaciega Rioja Crianza 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet-red with tawny hues. Outstanding notes of cask aging underscore its fruity personality. Smooth yet robust flavour; well-structured with a lingering finish.

Low and a bit heavy on the nose, with a deep core of dark wood underlay, with chocolate dipped cherry fruit and some coconut and mint accents. This is light and fresh on the palate with lovely brightness. The tannins are well balanced, adding some mouthgrab to what seems at first to be a rather lightweight wine. With air, more fruit emerges in a sort of macerated raspberry/strawberry vein with a lovely bright note, maybe combining a touch of chalk with some unripe strawberry. That unripe strawberry arrives on the finish as well, which is rather long and well structured. A background of aromatic oak supports a combination of fresh and dried red berry fruit. This is lovely Crianza, expressive but lean and taut. 89pts

Addicting and tantalizing, and somewhat musty nose with tobacco and black licorice aromas. The mouth is rich with cherry/strawberry fruit, black pepper, and a really nice balance of tannins with acidity. Mouthwatering finish. I had this with chorizo and it was awesome.

Beautiful ripe and bright fruit on the nose wrapped with some earthiness and dirt lead into a medium-bodied, spicy and complex delight. Firm and round, this would go lovely with any red meat dish
