Museum Crianza 2003

  • Area: Spain, Cigales
  • Grape: Tempranillo
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black 89 Dilettante 89

Description: Like the boots of a Conquistador, this has intense flavors of Corinthian leather, forest floor, wild mushrooms, hard wood and spice. The finish delivers an unexpected bourbon chaser. Decant to loosen it up. A cranberry high-note appears on the finish after 40 minutes.

Price: $17

Note: Excellent with a strong bleu cheese and wild black trumpet mushrooms.
