CVNE 'Cune' Rioja Reserva 2017
($30.00 Before Tax)
Called "Cuarto Año" among the locals because it spends 4 years (2 in barrel & 2 in bottle) aging to enhance complexity prior to release, this Reserva is full-bodied, layered & powerful with chewy polished tannins. Excellent vintage even with 50% yield los

Varietal: 85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha Tinta y Mazuelo from vines that average 20-25 years of age. All fruit from Estate vineyards in the villages of Rodezno, Villalba, and Haro in the Rioja Alta region. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature. After 12 days in a vat, the grapes are pressed, and malolactic fermentation takes place in a tank. The wine is aged in American oak barrels for 24-months, and then bottled aged for an additional 24-months.
Taste: The wine is garnet in color with pink hints at the rim. High aromatic intensity with aromas of berries, florals, orange peel, and licorice that blend in with the oak aging notes for spice, vanilla, and aniseed. On the palate it is smooth thanks to the well integrated tannins that give elegance and length and lead to a dark fruity and balsamic-esque finish.
