Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Crianza 2015

SKU 42499


Garnet red colour, clean and bright with tears. In the nose, the wine displays medium intensity, frank with aromas of fresh black fruit, liquorice and sweet notes of ageing such as nutmeg, cinnamon and patisserie. In the mouth it is intense, medium acidity, integrated tannins and medium-bodied. The aftertaste recalls black fruit and woody aromas. Harmony, balance and ready to consume. Perfect for white meats, medium-cured cheeses and tapas.

Wine AdvocateOne 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.

Wine SpectatorThis 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.

Wine EnthusiastA 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.
