2010 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza - 90 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 90 pts"(90% tempranillo and 10% graciano; aged in American oak for a year): Deep red. Vibrant red berry and vanilla aromas are accented by a peppery nuance. Pliant cherry-vanilla and raspberry flavors show a distinct sweetness and provide very good palate coverage. Supple and persistent Rioja with gentle grip and lingering sweetness. - Josh Raynolds"

2011 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza - 89 PTS - WA

"wa89These are custom cuvées made specifically for importer Fran Kysela. Palacio del Burgo is a large estate, even for Rioja, with over 494 acres of vines. All three of these inexpensive offerings are impressive and merit serious interest from thrifty consumers. The 2011 Crianza (90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano) spends 12 months in American oak barrels. It reveals notes of vanilla, new saddle leather and sweet black cherries in a medium-bodied, elegant as well as complex and concentrated style. A more classic Rioja than the 2013 Tinto, it should drink well for 2-3 years. - Robert Parker"

2011 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza - 90 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 90 pts"(90% tempranillo and 10% graciano): Inky ruby. Musky cherry and underbrush aromas are complemented by notes of cedar, tobacco and vanilla. Juicy and light on its feet, offering lively redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that gain depth and take on a smoky nuance with air. Closes bright and long, with building spiciness and smooth, slow-building tannins. Shows the 90% American oak that's used at this estate; a classic Rioja at a great price. - Josh Raynolds"

2012 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Vivid ruby. Deeply pitched scents of candied dark berries, cherry-vanilla and woodsmoke, with a suave floral note building in the glass. Supple, sweet and expansive, offering broad blackberry and violet pastille flavors and a late touch of coconut. Fine-grained tannins come in late on a long, spice-tinged finish that echoes the vanilla and smoke notes. This wine was raised entirely in American oak. - Josh Raynolds"

2014 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for a year in new and used American oak barrels) Saturated ruby. Ripe dark berries, vanilla, baking spices and pungent flowers on the deeply perfumed nose. Plush, oak-accented blackberry and cassis flavors are joined by a mocha element that builds as the wine opens with air. The spicy note repeats on the long, subtly tannic finish, which leaves a bitter cherry note behind. - Josh Raynolds"
