01 Enate, Crianza

Though mostly tempranillo, the 30% cabernet shows here, lending a heavy raspberry and cassis balance with loads of spicy, brambly berries. Brown butter and mushrooms. Clearly Spanish and clearly tempranillo because of its hot fruit, yet also decidedly New World with plush dark fruit, high alcohol in the back of the throat, and hedonistically creamy oak on the finish. Over time in the glass the fruit evolves to strawberries, sweet cherries, and creme fraiche.
