"The 2012 Crianza is a blend of Tempranillo (91%), Cabernet Sauvignon (6%) and Merlot (3%), fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts, and matured for one year in French and American oak barrels. This feels like a very fine and fresh Crianza from Carraovejas, with a lot of aromas of licorice and bright red cherries, plus some flowers coming through with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and very balanced with fine, sleek tannins and a silky texture. Great crianza! 650,000 bottles of this wine were produced. - Luis Gutierrez"
