Cune Rioja Reserva 2013
Wine & SpiritsIf you love the pleasures of traditional Rioja, you may be as charmed by this wine as I am. It's not flashy or insistent. In fact, it's sort of homely in its simplicity, more about delicacy and finesse than complexity. This starts out on tight red berry scents, builds tension with cool acidity, then adds depth with gentle sweetness, so the wine feels both firm and lush. Kudos to CVNE for one of the most compellingly drinkable 2012s you can find. Staff Pick
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cune Reserva benefits from the fact that most of the top wines will not be bottled in that challenging vintage and therefore, many of the wines that usually go to Imperial are probably in this blend. This is fresh and has red fruit freshness, a light-styled palate and very fine tannins. This is a red for the short term. Some 500,000 bottles were produced in this cool vintage.
Wine SpectatorFresh and focused, this red offers black cherry, plum, licorice and smoky flavors, well-balanced by light, firm tannins and crisp acidity. Graceful. Drink now through 2021.
