Viña Sastre Crianza 2012

Viña Sastre Crianza

Viña Sastre‚Äôs Crianza is made from 100% Tempranillo sourced from 20 to 65-year-old vines grown in chalky clay soils.

Vinification The wine was aged 18 months in new French oak barrels, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes On the nose, it's unmistakeably Tempranillo. Lots of complex flavors here: exotic spicy notes (cedar, cinnamon, black pepper) as well as meat, blueberries, and red bell peppers. This is an elegant wine, with a sense of restrained power and a very long finish.
