Attractive garnet color con purple hints on the meniscus. High aromatic intensity of forest fruits like blackberries and wild cranberries intermingled with the black licorice, vanilla and nutmeg coming from the time in barrels. Its entry in mouth is soft and marked by the balance between the tannin and the final acidity of this wine. Long and fruity aftertaste to pair with every kind of food.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorCherry and orange peel flavors show a bright, sweet-tart character in this red. Firm underlying tannins and lively acidity give this structure, while vanilla and spice notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2025.
