The 2008 Fortius Crianza, composed of undisclosed amounts of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in American Oak for 12 months; has appealing aromas of lees, red currant and pomegranate. It is medium bodied, fruity to integrated; is a bit on the acidic side, has subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. Drink with food; good now to 2015. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87-88 pts. Tasted Jan/13.
