2009 Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza - 88 PTS - IWC

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 88 Pts"(90% tempranillo and 10% graciano, raised in American oak): Deep ruby. Cherry-vanilla and oak spices on the nose, with a suave floral overtone. Ripe, lush and broad, offering sweet dark berry flavors and a smoky nuance. The vanillin oak comes on strong on the finish, which is spicy, pliant and persistent. I like the energy of this youthful wine fruit but the oak is slightly assertive right now."

2009 Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza - 88 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 88 Pts"The 2009 Crianza is even more interesting. A classic Rioja with lots of toasty oak intermixed with some white chocolate, black currant and cherry fruit, the vanillin from the barrels is part of the cedary, sweet perfume and fleshy flavor this wine imparts. A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, it is deep ruby-colored and medium to full-bodied, with a very supple texture. It is obviously made to be consumed over the next 2-4 years."

2010 Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza - 88 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 88 Pts"The 2010 Crianza (90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano) was aged 12 months in American oak. It displays a similar color, but a slightly more complex nose of charcoal, roasted herbs, black cherries and black currants. Seductive and seamless with ripe tannin as well as low acidity, this fleshy, delicious 2010 should drink well for several more years."
