LORINON Tinto Crianza Bodegas Breton 2001 (review)

88 points.

Rioja, Spain. 12.5%

Lovely soft squashy fruited Tempranillo. With a nice touch of savoury oak influence (I’m not sure how the Spanish do this with American oak). A very enjoyable wine. Without high alcohol.

An excellent cafe wine. Drink now or over the next year or two. $25.

PS 2001 was a very good vintage in Spain.
