Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Crianza 2015
|Brand||Bodegas Ramon Bilbao|
One of the most popular wines from Rioja has to be the 2015 Crianza from Ramón Bilbao, of which almost three million bottles are produced, and the wine sells at a very attractive price. It's a classical crianza-Tempranillo aged in American oak barrels, with a classical, polished, easy-to-drink profile. I saw more fruit and less oak here, which I liked, and it is quite accessible and juicy, with fine tannins and a lively, fresh palate with some power. 2015 has a little more alcohol than previous years.
This red shows a savory character, with toast and dried herb notes framing plum, fig, forest floor and coffee flavors. Light, firm tannins and fresh acidity keep this focused. Drink now through 2023.
A heavy nose is oaked to the point that this Crianza smells mostly of charred wood and shoe polish. Oak-dominant flavors of herbal berry fruits and plum mixed with baking spices conclude with a resiny aftertaste.
