Campo Viejo Rioja Reserva Tempranillo 2013 750mL
The blackberry aromas with hints of toasted oak and nuts are most attractive. Full-bodied, round and silky with a lovely finish. Lots of wood, but holds it together. Drink now.
Evidence of ongoing improvements at this large bodega under winemaker Elena Adell, this is a voluminous and commendable blend, especially in a year like 2013. Tempranillo-based with 15 Graciano and Mazuelo, it’s sappy, floral and elegant with subtle reduction and a core of sweet raspberry fruit. Not bad for 1.5m bottles. 2018-21
