2013 Vina Herminia Crianza Rioja
The family Lagunilla founded and developed the winery and vineyards for over one hundred years. In 1997, a larger wine group in Spain purchased Vina Hermina and invested heavily in upgrading the vineyards and facilities. Vineyards in the higher altitude of Lower Rioja lie in the foothills of the Pyrenees where the weather allows for excellent ripening of the fruit. That coupled with old traditions and new technologies make for outstanding wine.

"85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha. An elegant and intense nose comprising black fruit, blackberry and herbs, with a real medicinal edge is followed deliciously by a well-structured palate of licorice, plums, tobacco and black fruit notes, which also has round meaty tannins, a lovely texture and a beautiful long finish."
Garnet red with cherry and ripe-cherry tones in the glass. A lively, clear color with high-intensity. This wine displays hearty, complex and fruity aromas, with rich tones of dark fruits, good oak notes, cherry and plum, balanced and elegant oak. Round on the palate, viscous and creamy, rich and voluminous, long and balanced finish with plenty of sweet tannins.
