A 'traditional' style of Rioja made with 'modern' characteristics. Gomez Cruzado is a proud new addition to our Spanish portfolio, the winery dates back to 1886 but have also kept themselves off the radar.
The nose explodes with ripe black cherry, black raspberry, sweet and sour plum, leather, dried violet, dill, tarragon, vanilla bean, sawdust, coconut husk, and tobacco leaf. The palate very much confirms the nose as you get to appreciate the wonderful core of fruit and richness.
put, the wine preserves classic notes of Rioja without being dried out
and dusty. It is nearing full-bodied, with tannins that are
well-integrated and silky—the balance is exceptional.
