Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Finca El Encinal Crianzatext

Finca El Encinal Crianza 2016

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainThis wine is so typical of Ribera del Duero: warm, earthy black fruits, leather, crushed florals, broken stones, dark cocoa, baking spice. Though you feel the structure of the wood, it doesn't overwhelm the fruit of this youthful wine. Estate tempranillo from Pesquera and Sotillo aged six months in 50/50 American/French oak. Energy, plus structure, plus drinkability = winning combination.Tasted: 07 February 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 BCLS Producer: Bodega ValparaisoDistributors: The Drinks List
