2015 Viña Real Crianza Rioja

SKU #1431730 92 points James Suckling

 This is a fuller and richer crianza with dried fruit, meat and spice. Layered and round-textured. Shows soft tannins. Rich and flavorful at the finish. Gorgeous wine.  (2/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The excellent 2015 Viña Real Crianza is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% split between Garnacha Tinta, Mazuelo and Graciano from Rioja Alavesa; it fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for 13 to 14 months. It's subtle, harmonious and serious, clean and with a good compromise between ripeness and freshness. This is a benchmark Crianza, with a little more fruit and weight than the Cune, with some fine tannins, keeping its poise. (LG)  (2/2018)

90 points Vinous

 Brilliant ruby-red. Spicy, sharply focused red fruit aromas, along with a suave floral nuance that builds in the glass. In an elegant, fine-grained style, offering lithe raspberry and cherry flavors that pick up a peppery accent on the back half. Shows very good clarity on the subtly tannic, lively finish, which strongly echoes the spice note. (JR)  (2/2019)
