Castillo D Clavijo Rioja Crianza 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Criadores de Rioja typifies twenty-first century Rioja in its careful balancing of tradition and innovation. The winery was established in 2000 with a view to modernising the production of Rioja wines whilst working with the scores of small, local growers to make wines that reflect the quality and history of Rioja. Under the careful eye of young winemaker Paloma Redondo, the winery is a palace of stainless steel - with oak barrels being used sparingly - but the wines themselves are true to the region, and eschew the vogue for an 'international style'. The Castillo de Clavijo Rioja Crianza 2004 has a strong impact with a wonderful nose of leather, spice, dark berry and hints of vanilla. The palate has nice smoky flavors of strawberry, cherry and cedar, with a cherry inspired finish.
