"The 2011 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo aged one year in barrel that shows telltale aromas of a Ribera crianza, a mixture of ripe red and black fruit and the spiciness from the oak aging, with a lactic background. The palate shows ripe, juicy tannins a silky texture and good freshness. It is supple and tasty, and very pleasant overall. It develops strong toffee notes and flavors of cured meat with time in the glass. Tasty and showy. A very good crianza at a very good price. Drink now-2018. - Luis Gutierrez"
