Finca Antigua Crianza, 2001

Not a cocktail, but I don’t have a wine category. I enjoy wine, but don’t concern myself with it overmuch. Are my tastes proletarian? I don’t care. What I do know is that we had a lovely bottle this evening, and I’m going to look for more of it, because the Finca Antigua Crianza 2001, from Martinez Bujanda, is delicious.

I don’t have a dab-hand with a wine-writer’s vocabulary, so I won’t attempt to describe it beyond that. Which is just as well, because someone at Martinez Bujanda thought it would be a good idea for the tasting notes of their Tempranillo to include :

Long and persistent finish. Touches of yoghurt appear in the retronasal tract.

I am so glad we had the crianza instead.
