Diez-Caballero Crianza 2018 is an award winning 100% Tempranillo grape wine from Rioja, Spain. The 2018 Crianza is also a short-run production, with only 70,000 bottles produced of this fantastic wine. The 2018 Crianza feels young and tender, a little creamy after a very recent bottling but with the stuffing and balance to come into its own with a little more time in the bottle. A definite keeper! It’s a clean Crianza that combines classical texture with more modern characteristics. The wine has been matured in French and American oak barrels for 15 months and was bottled in September 2020. Serve 12-14°C—cellar potential of 2 to 3 years.

The Diez-Caballero Crianza has dark cherry colour with a toasted, spicy aroma, delicate cocoa nose. The taste on the pallet is smooth, toasted with a fine balance of bitterness on the palate. A truly delightful wine. An ideal accompaniment to entrées, cured meat platters, light first courses and more complex meat main dishes.
