Cune Rioja Crianza 2012

Rioja, SpainNo significant changes which suggest this wine was finely balanced coming out of the gate and it still is. The fruit comes from the La Rioja Alta in an 85/15 mix of tempranillo/ garnacha tinta and mazuelo. It's fermented in steel followed by a full malolactic fermentation before spending a year in older American oak barrels. The nose is red-fruited and flecked with violets. The palate is similar dried cherries and an always persistent acidity keeping the mix fresh and bright — a refreshing mid-week character red best served with grilled sausages or lamb.Tasted: 27 March 2019Tasted 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.
