El Circulo Crianza 2006, Rioja (Tempranillo, 13.5%)

First nose is heavily spicy, especially black pepper and also some thyme comes up with swirling. Tannins are strongly there but still the wine is not giving a deep feeling. Also it has an unfavorable metallic touch in the palate, which would have lots of different reasons. A medium bodied, oaky, spicy, reasonable priced wine. In case of buying, then it is recommended with food. Not a wine to enjoy just by drinking, it needs something accompanied. A mediocre wine from the legendary La Rioja. Right now 2009 recolte is available in Finland. 82/100 (Tasted in autumn 2011) Price: 9.99€/75cl/January 2013
