El Coto de Rioja Crianza 2006
|Brand||El Coto de Rioja|
Wine EnthusiastAn 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.
Wine SpectatorThis sleek red shows racy flavors of cherry, licorice and vanilla, as well as leaf and cola accents, with gentle tannins and bright acidity.
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Crianza is a forward, savory effort with a pleasant bouquet, good balance, and another 6 years of drinkability.
