Crianza 2018

Marqués de Tomares' centenarian wines epitomize traditional Rioja at its finest; they are bright, fruity, and perfectly balanced. Don Román Montaa established the winery Marqués de Tomares in 1910; his grandchildren now run the business and keep up the family legacy of growing grapes on the estate, which dates back to 1886. With over 106 hectares of vineyards, many of which are more than a century old and are held by a single family. With its saddle nose and dark cherry and licorice scents, Marqués de Tomares Crianza screams Rioja, giving classic elegance and old world depth while caressing luscious fruit and purple blossoms. There's enough funk and rustic charm to please traditionalists, while there's also enough ripeness and body to balance the velvety texture. Tobacco is always present.
