Member Review by Nicki Gig:

aromas of red currants, some dark berry fruit, and a dustiness on the wine with a hints of oak. nice complexity with a little spice on the palate combined with some cocoa.

The Eguren family, generation after generation since 1870, have been dedicated to grape growing and to the elaboration and ageing of great wines in one of the most prestigious estates in Rioja. Sierra Cantabria has made its wine under this brand since 1957, from its 90 hectares of vineyards. It has an average age of 35 years and is situated in a unique location, between the River Ebro and the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. This mountain range has given the name to the winery and protects the vineyard from the cold winds from the north, creating a specific microclimate for the cultivation of the vines and therefore providing a differentiated personality to our wines.

Magnetic red wine that aligns all your senses and delivers a Tempranillo knockout punch. Deep inky

Sierra Cantabria and Rioja are obviously known for their red wines, but they do have some wonderful blancos. This Organza is beyond wonderful. A mix of the common Rioja blanco grapes: viura, malvesia and grenache blanco, it must be the oak that provides the richness that so differentiates this wine from its peers. Great with paella!

The 2001 Amancio is a loaded offering from a first-class vintage. The aromatics are quite developed thanks to its bottle age and the tannins are nicely integrated. This impeccably balanced, elegant, layered wine should have a 30-35 year lifespan. ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
