The 2008 Finca Sobreño Crianza, aged in American oak for 7 months, is a medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with aromas of yogurty raspberry and oak. It is a bit acidic, has tannins that are subtle to refined (decant for 30 min) and finish that is medium. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87 pts - I would expect this wine to be around $12. Tasted Apr/12.
