Lacrimus Crianza 2016

The second wine of the Madrid & Darracott Spanish Red Wine Blends tasting comes from the same Bodega as the first but this time from the Rioja region.

It is a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano and had spent 12 months ageing in oak

It looks and tastes like a classic Rioja: Black berries and spice. A dry wine with light plus body and medium tannins. A good black fruit flavour before the lingering spicy finish kicks in.
