The 2005 Cubillo Tinto Crianza has a wonderful bouquet with leathery red fruit augmented by subtle hints of undergrowth, tobacco and a touch of spice. The palate is medium-bodied with a bit of piquancy on the entry. The acidity is quite sharp and it is missing a little flesh and weight towards the tensile finish.
dried red cherry, tart dried cranberry and a clear coconut aspect from the year in American oak. A pleasant touch of brett lingers on the nose.
Had with steak, shrimp, scallops, and brussel sprouts for christmas celebration!
