WineDiva's Review

Pretty, fresh, woven.
Made from Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and Mazuelo and Graciano grapes, this crianza was aged 13-14 months in American oak barrels and then additional time in bottle before release.
Attractive dried strawberry, cedar, iodine, rose petal and fine spices, leather and anise aromas lead to a classic palate. Smooth and earthy it has good concentration, persistence and freshness.
A pretty wine, evolved and woven.

Recommended Pairings
Cheese - Semi Hard / Medium , Good First Impressions, Tomatoes and Tomato Sauces

WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
