Cune 2011 (Spain: Rioja)

Name Cune 2011
Varietal Rioja Reserva
Region Spain: Rioja
Notes "The 2011 Cune Reserva is mainly Tempranillo with 15% made up of the other red grapes grown in the region, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo (CariƱena). 2011 was a ripe and early harvest, but the wine here shows quite balanced. It has the telltale notes of American oak most consumers are looking for in this classical Riojas, as the wine matured in barrique for 18 months. Dill, vanilla, black cherries and smoky and spicy notes are well married. The palate is velvety, sinewy and polished. All in this is balanced and easy to drink. 500,000 bottles produced."
