2006 Campo Viejo Rioja Reserva

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is ruby red with a gold rim. Bright, deep with a complex nose. One the fruit side, the sum of the sensations of the varieties make up its composition: jammy red fruit, cherries, black plums and also raspberries and blackberries. Its time in the barrel provides cloves, liquorice, pepper, vanilla, coconut…blended and highlighted by the aromas produced during bottle ageing. On the palate, it has a smooth, balanced attack, elegant and full-bodied, with a long lingering finish in which cocoa and coffee come through. Delicious with red meat, game, roasts, mature and blue-vein cheeses.

    (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
