Vina Jaraba Crianza 2015
90 (VfC)
Score Publication Review Copy
90 View from the Cellar The 2015 Viña Jaraba Crianza is made from the same blend as the 2016 Cosecha (eighty percent tempranillo and ten percent each of cabernet and merlot), but it spends double the time in barrel- eight months- prior to racking. Again, the casks are a mix of French and American oak. The longer sojourn in barrel has given the wine a bit more refinement on the nose, which wafts from the glass in a classy mix of red and black cherries, a nice touch of tempranillo spice elements, lovely soil, woodsmoke and a bit of cedary oak in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and nascently complex, with a good core, fine focus and grip, a bit more tannin than the Cosecha bottling and lovely precision on the long finish. This is a very good bottle and again, an excellent value, as it retails here in the states for all of thirteen dollars per bottle! 2018-2030.
