CVNE, Cune Rioja Reserva 2013, wine review

For 29 January 2018 the CVNE, Cune Rioja Reserva 2013 from Rioja in Spain is our Wine of the Week. Rioja is such a go-to wine for most red wine lovers, rarely failing to deliver, and especially so from quality houses such as the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España – CVNE. Mostly Tempranillo and aged for one year in French and American oak barrels, plus a further year in bottle before release, it’s exemplary stuff striding confidently down a path between the traditional vanilla-rich sumptuous styles, and more modern, more taut styles where freshness is more prized. Crammed with black fruits wreathed in smokiness and with a graphite edge, the palate has masses of savoury, balsamic-touched fruit, a sheen of creamy oak and lovey framework provided by polished but present tannins and its tangy acidity.
