Bodegas Campo Viejo Gran Reserva 2012
|Brand||Bodegas Campo Viejo|
Colour: Ruby red with a gold-tinged rim.
Deep, vibrant colour.
Nose: A Complex nose. It retains the ripe red-berry fruit aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and block plums extraordinarily well. Gradually it opens up to reveal smoky, toasted wood nuances, with spices and hints of minerals and tobacco.
Taste: A Smooth mouth-feel, with sweet, polished tannins. A long, elegant, perfumed finish with final hints of coffee with chocolate.
Mature berry, cola and coffee aromas announce a gran reserva that just reaches that level of affordable excellence that everyone is looking for. The palate is a bit raw and bumpy, and the spiced plum flavors are familiar and touched up by buttery oak, but overall this delivers enough classic Rioja tobacco, vanilla and red fruit character to warrant spirited consumption.
This lean version offers red plum and dried cherry flavors, with licorice, tobacco and forest floor notes, backed by light, firm tannins and orange peel acidity. Traditional style. Drink now through 2022. 5,600 cases imported.
