2005 Campo Viejo Rioja Reserva

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby-red colour with a golden rim. Bright and deep. Complex aromas. There is a great balance between the fruit (cherries, black plums, ripe blackberries) and the clean nuances coming from the wood (clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut). The nose is further enriched by the aromas that develop during bottle ageing. Smooth and balanced on the palate with a full, elegant feel and a long, lingering finish.

    (From 2000 Vintage) Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. From one of the most recognisable Rioja brands on UK shelves, this is always a reliable name for the price. Complex aromas of cherry, raspberry and spice. Full-bodied palate with intense rich oak and chocolate flavours. Drink up to 2008. £8.99
