From start to finish, everything about this wine is great. Classic spanish charm in this spicy cherry, cedary nose that plays out nice on the palate. The tannins are smooth but with a (classic spanish) dustiness. Nice firm finish. respectable wine.

The 2006 Prado Rey Crianza, aged in American oak for 12 months followed by 3 more in French oak, is medium bodied, fruity to INTEGRATED, with nice aromas of black cherry, prune, coconut and vanilla. The structure is a bit disconnected, with refined tannins (decant for 30 min); the finish is long. Drink 2014/15-2020. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - watch out for some sediment. Tasted Feb/12.
