vinous logo"(aged for a year in new and used American oak barrels) Brilliant ruby. Smoke-accented red fruit, floral and coconut scents are sharpened by a peppery nuance that builds with aeration. Sweet and lively on the palate, offering jammy raspberry and cherry flavors that show good depth and focus. Takes a darker turn to cherry on the finish, which repeats the coconut note and hangs on with good, spicy tenacity.- Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo"Deep ruby. Smoky-accented cherry, blackcurrant and coconut aromas are sharpened by a suggestion of cracked pepper that adds spicy lift. Push and broad in the mouth, offering sweet dark fruit liqueur and oak spice flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Finishes creamy and appealingly sweet, with rounded tannins coming in late to add framework and gentle grip. - Josh Raynolds"

2015 Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza - 8/10 Highly Recommended - RWS

reversewinesnob logo 250"The 2015 Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza begins with an inviting aroma of black cherry, lots of oak (in the form of vanilla, cedar, chocolate and more) and baking spice notes. Taking a sip reveals tons of vanilla and oaky spice interlaced with lots of juicy, ripe dark fruit. This is a silky smooth, medium-bodied wine with good acidity. Cocoa and coffee notes come out mid-palate and lead into the long-lasting, dry finish featuring lingering oaky spice notes and dark raisiny fruit. This is really tasty, flavorful stuff with tons of good old American oak! - Jon Thorsen"
