"This wine shows shades of medium to deep shiny cherry colour on a purple background. To the nose, intense aromas of ripe fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) stand out, complemented with subtle hints of oak. To the palate, it shows structured and round with a good integration of fruitiness and oakiness. The aftertaste is marked by very well balanced tannins as well as by persistent spicy, toasty and balsamic aromas. A long stay in bottle is the finishing touch to this Rioja Alavesa wine's character." —winemaker

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, Garnacha, and Mazuela
"Viña Real has now its own separate winery, but it's still the CVNE brand from Rioja Alavesa. The 2011 Viña Real Crianza, mostly Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in stainless steel, matured in barrel for a little more than one year before bottling. The wine is racked every 5-6 months. It has a very ripe nose with hints of raisins, plenty of plums and black cherries, a little decadent and baroque. The palate is ripe and tasty with balsamic, Mediterranean flavors that are round, lush and approachable. 900,000 bottles produced." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate

"Brilliant ruby-red. Fragrant red berry and candied rose scents, with hints of vanilla and cured tobacco in the background. Silky, sweet and open-knit on entry, but the sappy raspberry and cherry flavors tighten up in the mid-palate. Shows very good clarity and lift on the clinging finish, which is framed by supple, slow-building tannins. Drinking window: 2018 - 2024." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
