2009 Vina Real Crianza
This is a great deal for $10.99 at Costco and really over delivers. The first thing I picked up was the bright cherry aroma on the nose along with the deep red color of the wine. The fruit comes through immediately and continues mid palate with medium tannins and just enough acidity to balance it out. It’s medium body allows the flavors to stand out without being overpowered. My favorite was the red fruit spice that took the wine home through the finish. Tasting it blind, it might fool you into thinking it could be a Bordeaux. I enjoy how these Spanish wines from the same region can be so different.
