More about this wine from Rioja, Spain
Wines from Rioja come in four traditional styles: Rioja, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva. Crianza, like the one you have before you, is typically aged for a year in old oak barrels (meaning there isn’t a super oaky flavor in the wine) and then for another year in the bottle. These are wines that are meant for everyday drinking - so get popping.

This wine is like lavender and thyme ground up and sprinkled over halved plums being seared on the grill. There are heaps of freshly, sun-ripened raspberries, wet earth and root notes, almost like running through a dewy field of long grass with the brightness of thousands of towering sunflowers in full bloom.
