CVNE, Cune Rioja Reserva 2013, wine review

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.
