Varietal Tempranillo
Region Spain: Rioja
Notes "This has a rich array of ripe dark fruit with a bold and fleshy palate that has plenty of appeal right now. Smooth, juicy and plush." (James Suckling) " Brilliant ruby. Aromas of cherry pit, blackberry, licorice and cola are complemented by a subtle hint of dill. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering cherry preserve, red berry, vanilla and rose pastille flavors that spread out slowly on the back half. Shows very good clarity and appealing juiciness on a long, supple finish framed by well-knit tannins. Raised in a combination of French and American oak barrels." (Vinous)

Additional Notes

"Powerful and succulent with a savoury decadence and brooding cassis fruit. Chunky and full bodied with a long, punchy finish." (Decanter Magazine) "The 2016 Ramirez de la Piscina Crianza defines Rioja well. This wine shines with pleasing aromas and flavors of dried earth and savory spices. Enjoy its smooth and lively palate with lighter meat dishes." (Wilfred Wong,
