Vivanco Rioja Crianza 2011

Vivanco Rioja Crianza 750ML 2011      
Sku: 18681

Tasting notes
The bouquet consists of mature red berries, with hints of smoke, vanilla, and spice. Well-structured in the mouth, this Crianza is expressive and meaty and possesses a good balance of red fruit and toasted flavors. The tannins are mature and lead to an elegant, long finish. While this wine can be enjoyed now, it will also keep for 5-10 years.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Apr 2015)
The 2011 Crianza feels very ripe, flirting with overripeness. This Tempranillo from Briones, aged 16 months in oak, has notes of baked apples and compost. The medium-bodied palate reveals abundant, grainy tannins and enough acidity. 750,000 bottles.

Wine maker notes
Vivanco Rioja Crianza is bursting with red berries. Mild hints of smoke, toasted vanilla, and spice balance the fruit. A well-structured, meaty wine with mature tannins, this is elegant through the long finish. Vinified in French oak vats and aged for 16 months in previously-used French and American oak barrels, this wine will continue to evolve over the next several years. An ideal and versatile pairing for a wide variety of Mediterranean cuisine. The label depicts Joan Miro’s Le Troubadour painting, on display at the Vivanco Museum, that features a corkscrew. The bright brushstrokes convey the freshness of the wine. The 2008 vintage was named a “Top 100? by Wine Spectator.
