Viña Eguia, Rioja Crianza, Spain 2009
17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Eguia, which means ‘truth’ in the local Basque dialect, has been under the umbrella of Bodegas Muriel since 1910. Its crianza has an attention-grabbing nose of high-toned, lifted, spicy red fruits and wood. To taste it’s broad but focused, with a lightness of touch despite the concentration of creamy, brambly fruits.
