"Valsacro's 2005 Crianza is a blend of 50% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha, and 10% Mazuelo aged in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of cedar, tobacco, mineral, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a medium-bodied, elegant wine with some structure, savory fruit, a smooth texture, and excellent depth. It will evolve for another 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now through 2020."
