Burgo Viejo Rioja Crianza

I found this wine to be a dark plum color, with a young wine appearance. On the nose the wine was very expressive with dark cherry and black berry fruit, spices, leather, vanilla, bright green pepper and smokey. In the mouth I tasted dark black berry fruit, spices, and pepper…..with med plus tannins very bold but well rounded and smooth. I would recommend decanting this wine for 30/45 min to let it open a bit.

Ok so here is a real bargain in a really enjoyable wine, I purchased this wine for $14 at Riverside Wine. The wine is a Crianza level Rioja which is third tier as they go Gran Reserva, Reserva, Crianza and then Rioja in the classification system.
