Hermanos Peciña Señorio de P. Peciña Crianza 2007 DOCa, Rioja, Spain
This Crianza is a blend of 95% Trempranillo, 3% Graciano and 2% Garnacha or Grenache, maturation in seasoned American oak for 24 months than a further two years in bottle before release. Alcohol comes in at 13.5%.
This wine opened up with sensuous aromas of wild berries, exotic spices, tobacco leaf, old church wood and dried flowers. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, smooth with a soft texture, balance acidity and fined grained tannins. Medium length on the finish, dry, a bit tangy, rustic and slightly disjointed and lacking energy and finesse. I love the aromatics and mouthfeel but the finish didn’t do it for me, score 87 points.
