2000 Señorio de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja (1.5L)

SKU #1061658 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2000 Pecina Crianza is 95% Tempranillo with the balance Graciano and Garnacha from organically farmed estate fruit. It was aged for 24 months in seasoned American oak before being bottled unfiltered (as are all of these wines). Dark ruby-colored with a brick rim, it exhibits a nose of cedar, earth, mushroom, tobacco, and blackberry. This leads to a stylish, elegant wine with good concentration and depth that should drink well for another 6 years. It is an excellent value in traditional Rioja. Inner quote mark (2/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Light red. Explosive, perfumed nose offers a range of coconut-accented red berry aromas complicated by fresh and dried flowers, vanilla and cured tobacco. Sweet red fruit flavors are supple and expansive, with a distinctly old school character. Fine-grained tannins add structure to the long, silky finish. This is ready to drink and quite delicious. Inner quote mark (8/2007)

K&L Notes

From one of our favorite Rioja producers, comes this terrific magnum bottling from the very good 2000 vintage. It is drinking just about perfectly right now, with terrific purity of fruit combining with some subtle sweet earthy savor, with tannins that present themselves on the finish but are clearly becoming smoother. Though it's drinking great now and would make a wonderful choice for entertaining, it still has at least another five years of interesting development ahead of it. Here is a textbook example of how a great Crianza ages better than even some Gran Reserva level wines.

I may indeed be biased, here, but this is the magnum deal of the season. The wine shows how incredibly well good crianza ages, showing all of the lovely soft, slightly savory cherry fruit you hope for in a Rioja with some bottle age. Drink now or hold for another 5 or so years. A great deal in magnum format, from one of our favorite Spanish producers.
