Bodegas Urbina Crianza 2012
Medium crimson colour, this bottle of Bodegas Urbina Crianza emits an aromatic array of cedar, tobacco, spice, cherry and black raspberry. It is deliciously smooth with ripe damson fruit and a touch of mint from the oak. It displays an elegant personality with ample juice fruit on the palate, with some structure and a silky finish.
A blend of Tempranillo and Graciano. Maturated 12 months in American oak and 6 months in the bottle before release. The vineyard is situated on the norther-west edge of Rioja and it is an area that produces wines with a great capacity for aging. It is excellent for producing a whole lot of great wines – Reservas and Gran Reservas.
