2012 Amaren Rioja Angeles de Amaren - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The generously oaked 2012 Ángeles de Amaren is a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano with malolactic and 16 months of aging in new French and American oak barrels. There are plenty of spices and smoke, toasted aromas and balsamic notes. The palate is sleek and polished, with some dusty tannins and plenty of oak-related flavors. This is still quite oaky after five years, and I guess it will always remain oaky and is therefore not for all palates. 45,000 bottles produced."
