The 2008 Campo Viejo Reserva is composed of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo that was aged for 18 months in 50-50 French and American casks prior to release. The wine has intense aromas of vanilla, oak, milky cherry, clove and earth. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15-30 min) and a medium finish. Drink with food or sip on its own; drink now – 2018+. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted Dec/13.
