In 1968 a collection of growers from La Rioja came together to create Cosecheros Fuenmayor. Since then, these wines have won numerous commendations around the world. This 2014 Crianza is a refreshing blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuelo and aged in both North American and French oak for a year before bottling. There are some nice secondary characteristics taking shape here. On the nose, a complex bouquet of raspberry, blackberry, and toast. More of the same on the palate, with some licorice on the finish. A dense palate and ripe tannins lends some ageing potential. Can be served with veggies, with red meat sauces, and roasts.
