Made predominantly from Tempranillo grapes (70%) and aged in barrel for 9 months, the Enate Crianza appears balanced, delicate and with a particularly complex nose. (The label is the work of artist Víctor Mira)
A dark cherry colour, with great density, this wine is intense and complex on the nose, displaying aromas of ripe red fruit with smoky and spicy notes. It is balanced, dense and meaty on the palate, and lingers long.
NOTE: Decanting is recommended due to the possibility of sediment.
Aged for 9 months in French oak barrels (Cabernet Sauvignon) and American oak (Tempranillo), and afterwards for 18 months in bottle.

We sampled this on holiday in the Spanish Pyrenees, and wondered whether it would taste as good at home in UK. Pleased to say the journey has done it no harm - a lovely balanced wine and great value.

Pleasant dry wine with a liquorice after taste.
Full of tannins and a wine that would go very well with a meat casserole dish. This was the first time time I’ve tried the wine and will be ordering more.
This is a very good wine at a good price
I have been to the Enate Bodega and was impressed with the whole setup. All the wines are very good and this one is reasonably priced and very tasty.
The main reference point for the Somontano Denomination of Origin and a winery that describes itself as nature's apprentice, due to feelings of great respect and admiration, and which seeks to capture the perfection manifest in nature and convey it in their wines. Enate offers a wide range of wines, from classic Crianzas and Reservas, several single varietals, at different price points and with very distinct personalities, to choice wines like its highly-esteemed Enate Uno, a...
