90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The energetic 2016 Crianza was produced with Tempranillo grapes that fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel and matured in used oak barrels for 12 months. It's a clean and classical Tempranillo with moderate oak and clean aromas. It has a pleasant medium-bodied palate.400,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2018.
Aromas of blackberry with spicy tones (clove and cinnamon) from American oak, mild tobacco and light balsamic notes. The Tempranillo variety showing its typical elegance and complexity. Fresh and silky tannins, developing a great volume and structure. Long and tasty ending with an extraordinary after-nose aroma.
Pair with Medium-aged cheeses. White and red meats. Lamb, cooked fishes and stews such as tuna with potatoes, beans, and beans with partridge.
