Coto de Hayas Campo de Borja Crianza 2012

Blended Red from Spain
Review Date : 24-Nov-2015
Dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, a little lighter on rim. This has a fresh nose with dark red berry fruits entwined with herb and stalk elements lending a brackish nose. Savoury stalk and stem detail show with some depth, unfolding soft vanilla and cedary oak elements, lending spice, nuts and cedar. Medium-bodied, the palate is plush and juicy with soft, bright red berry fruit flavours melded with sweet vanilla and cedar. Some herb, stalk and brackish notes are present, enlivening the mouthfeel. This is sweet and juicy, with light, grainy tannins and fresh acidity carrying the palate with good energy to a fruity, grainy-textured, dry finish. This is a juicy and fruity Campo de Borja with some sweet cedary oak and a grippy mouthfeel. Match barbecued fare over the next 3 years. 40 y.o. Garnacha and 30 y.o. Tempranillo fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 6-9 months in French and American oak barrels. 16.5/20 Nov 2015 RRP $22.00
