Aged for three years in oak, Heredia’s Crianza compares well with most producers’ reserve offerings—medium-bodied, with restrained alcohol, it displays vibrant cherry fruit alongside plenty of earthy, mushroomy complexity. Stunning! Food Pairing Tapas, charcuterie, lamb, poultry

The 2016 Crianza Vinci Cubillo, from Haro in Rioja Alta, underwent a three-year aging process in used oak barrels. Garnet in color, the wine reveals enticing notes of cherry marmalade, complemented by herbal, mint-like hints. Dry, intense and fairly grippy, the 2016 also features a mild chalky texture. Firm and juicy with a vibrant core, it presents itself as a flavorful red in its primary state. I anticipate that further bottle-aging will unlock deeper complexities, and I look forward to revisiting it in the years to come.

Leather, tar and spice box aromas offer a fragrant overtone for this fresh, medium-bodied red. Fine, taut tannins sculpt flavors of dried cherry and cranberry, singed orange peel and cured tobacco. Silky on the palate, this opens nicely in the glass. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2029. 7,500 cases made; 5,000 cases imported.
