Lopez de Heredia Lopez Heredia CUBILLO CRIANZA 2008
Although aged 3 - 4 years in cask it still has good fruit, and has the delicious savoury character typical of this producer where wine making is still done the traditional way (eg fining with fresh egg whites).
Clear and bright ruby in colour
The nose is a complex mix of the merest hints of soft nuts, cinnamon, licquorice, brown sugar and vanilla pod wrapped round a core of crushed raspberries. The palate follows through with further complexity and stunning elegance. The typical ripe acidity is present and is what gives this wine its tremendous ability to age, but is neither harsh nor aggressive. The finish is persistant and leaves you wanting more and more...
