Castillo D Clavijo Rioja Crianza 2004

Member Review by OCKathyLovesRed:

This wine starts out strong with a wonderful nose of leather, spice, dark berry and hints of vanilla. The palate is a little less fabulous but has nice smoky flavors of strawberry, cherry and cedar. The finish is my least favorite part of this wine experience, but it's not the worst I've had. There is just a hint of a cough syrup flavor in the midst of the cherries in the finish, bit it's not so overwhelming that it would prevent me from buying this wine again. Let it breathe sufficiently before drinking and that will diminish.

Nice light to medium body. Good fruit with hints of vanilla. Not long on finish but pleasant overall.
