Front and back

Review:

Las Cenizas 2015 is a new addition to the wine portfolio of Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca Viña La Emperatriz). This very personal project takes its name from the historic village of Cenicero, a village well-known for its vineyards and top-quality wines, in the heart of the Rioja Alta region, and where the Hernáiz family have their roots.

Las Cenizas is made with grapes from the family-owned plots of Puentarrón, Los Hundidos, Sanchisnal and Carril, in Cenicero. It is basically a Tempranillo wine with a small quantity of Carignan (sometimes called Mazuelo) grapes, aged for 16 months in American and French oak barrels (40% of which are new), before being bottled — with a production of 6,643 bottles to be precise.

The result is a wine with aromas of ripe black fruits and spices to the front, and hints of wood. Full and pleasing on the palate, with a flavoursome, round texture, Las Cenizas is pure seduction.
