El Coto de Rioja Crianza 2006
An oaky, modern-style wine with a staunch mocha and vanilla influence, but the fruit is ripe and rich enough to handle it. Spicy and grainy on the nose, with vanilla and resin seeping through. The palate remains woody but is full of berry flavors, while the omnipresent barrel influence carries onto the rich, ripe finish.
This sleek red shows racy flavors of cherry, licorice and vanilla, as well as leaf and cola accents, with gentle tannins and bright acidity.
