Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the most popular wines from Rioja has to be the 2015 Crianza from Ramón Bilbao, of which almost three million bottles are produced, and the wine sells at a very attractive price. It's a classical crianza—Tempranillo aged in American oak barrels, with a classical, polished, easy-to-drink profile. I saw more fruit and less oak here, which I liked, and it is quite accessible and juicy, with fine tannins and a lively, fresh palate with some power. 2015 has a little more alcohol than previous years.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 14 months in American oak barrels.
