2007 Señorío de P.Peciña Crianza Rioja

SKU #1144633 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Senorio de P Pecina Crianza has a red cherry and orange rind-scented bouquet with a hint of tobacco creeping in with aeration. The palate is nicely balanced, with simple, rounded, cherry and strawberry fruit, which leads to a conservative, classic, leather-tinged finish. This is a competent modern Crianza. Drink now-2016.

K&L Notes

Along with Lopez de Heredia and La Rioja Alta, Señorío de P. Peciña is one of the standard bearers for traditional Rioja. The '07 Crianza is stylish, no surprise given the classic conditions of this harvest. What the wine lacks in richness or sumptuousness a la 2005, it more than makes up for in freshness and balance. On a very satisfying, dense, mouthfilling textural frame; bright, toasty red fruits, warm earth and wet tobacco, all reveal themselves in beautiful harmony. This is delicious now, and has several years of positive evolution ahead of it. The folks at Peciña are steadfast in maintaining traditional Rioja winemaking practices, pointing out that along with La Rioja Alta, Lopez de Heredia, and a few others, they are the only bodega who continues to carefully age and rack all their wines by hand. If we have a more satisfying bottle of traditionally crafted, under $25 red wine in the store, I'd be hard pressed to find it. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Additional Information:



- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.


- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
