K&L Notes

Cune is one of the oldest of Rioja bodegas. While they boast some of the best of historic, older 20th century vintages, in modern times they continue to produce very solid, traditionally oriented Riojas in two main product ranges: Imperial, which represents only Reservas and Gran Reservas in limited quantities, and their basic Cune line, into which this Crianza falls. Similar to many other successful wine brands, Cune's basic range of wines is made in robust quantities, which makes the consistent quality and value all the more impressive. At under $11, this is a terrific value not only in Rioja, but in any imported red.

    Cune is one of the oldest Bodegas in Rioja, so its safe to say they make great wine. This Crianza is awesome! The thing that stood out most to me about his wine was the balance. The nose had a nice ripe raspberry characteristic, and a nice aroma of earth and spice. This is a great food wine, with medium body and great acidity.

    Spice, structure, lively acidity and fruit are jammed packed into this awesome, unbeatabley priced Crianza. It begins with a lively nose and characters of fresh blackberries and cherries then leads you into the soft spice and well integrated structure. Complex, approachable and delicious.

    For value seekers, Rioja continues to be fertile ground to find great deals at every price point. Cune Crianza has definitely become one of these values in the Rioja under $12 category. They have applied extra attention to this fairly ubiquitous (in Spain, that is) bottling over the past 5 years, and it clearly shows in the quality of the wine. Supple, red fruited, very easy drinking, this functions perfectly as everyday house red or party wine, with the added bonus of some undeniable, unique regional style points - tough to get in such an inexpensive commercial production many other places in the world.

    An easy-going, tasty Crianza. Initial aromas of red cherries and plum, along with a bouquet of herbs, dust, and cedar. On the palate, a pleasant and lively elevated acidity, along with flavors of both dried and ripe cherries. Some plum and vanilla on the finish. A quintessential wine pairing with a plethora of various tapas choices; think Serrano ham or Manchego cheese
