2015 Ultimate Wine Challenge

Federico Paternina Banda Azul Crianza 2012 Rioja (Spain), 13% abv, $15.99

86
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Offers a very pretty nose of musk, American oak and candied blackberries. The palate is full of cassis, bramble fruits and chocolate. Sturdy tannins give this wine backbone, while good acidity gives it the perfect balance.
