"In 2013, many of the top wines were not bottled and others saw their volumes reduced, which I wonder if it's the reason why the 2013 Finca La Emperatriz Crianza showed so well, as it probably had fruit that in other years must have gone to other wines. It's a blend of different plots and the varietal break up is approximately 95% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha and 2% Viura (white). Since 2012, they have changed the style going for something more elegant, eliminating bleeding, with softer pumping over and maturing in barrels (mostly American oak) for some 14 months. It has a nose of ripe fruit and spices, quite balanced and elegant, and a similar, soft and silky palate, very drinkable. 136,600 bottles and 9,200 magnums."~L.G.
Very nice indeed - Black fruit, velvety tannins, reasonable complexity, nice balance, no harshness. What is there not to like
