Cune Rioja Crianza 2012

Rioja, SpainCVNE is named for the first initials of Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana, the fifth generation winery responsible for this La Rioja Alta blend of 85/15 tempranillo / garnacha tinta and mazuelo. After a stainless ferment, this spent one year in American and French oak barrels before bottling, and a rest in the cellar. Dried cherry, sanded wood, red florals on the medium bodied palate, one brightened with steady acidity and seasoned with salts. Tannins are lightly sticky, and ready to partner up with skirt steak or baby lamb.Tasted: 21 November 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 private wine stores QC 15.55 SAQ ON 16.95 LCBO MB 17.01 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online AB 19.95 private wine stores Producer: Compañía Vitivinícola del Norte de Espana (CVNE)Distributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
