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"
