Culmen Reserva 2011. Rioja, TA 93, WS 92
Grapes: Tempranillo, Garnacha
On the nose there is an intrusion of an intense vanilla and almond, mushroom and earth. Strong tannins and dark fruit on the pallet. Traces of blackcurrant, raisins, licorice. The finish is long and leaves a brief tannin after-taste but soon disappears. This wine, however, is on solid ground and has structure. Indeed a very pleasant experience.
