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.

aromas filled with spices and cocoa, raspberry chocolate. loads of varying berry fruit characteristics on the palate with spice and hints of oak and currants. A wonderful silky elegance. I loved!

A plush, seamless texture carries black fruit and exotic spices in this rich red, with notes of cocoa, cardamom, black pepper, olive and tobacco. Well-balanced, with integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Should age well. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases imported. -TMDeep red. Powerful strawberry, raspberry and floral oil aromas are positively room-filling, with pungent herbs and vanilla adding interest. In the mouth, pure red fruits deliver major flavor impact without any excess weight. Spicy redcurrant and cinnamon flavors linger on the suave, very long finish. Theres nothing wrong with drinking this now.Like all young Sierra Cantabria wines made from old vines, this has a purple color that's supported by aromas of coffee, mocha and black fruits. It's half aged in American oak (the other half is French), and it's much more tannic, acidic and structured than the fleshy 2003. A wine with pure flavors and a dynamic structure. Just under 1,000 cases made. Imported by Tempranillo, Inc. - M.S.The 2005 Coleccion Privada comes from two 50-year-old vineyards. The wine was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in new French and American oak. Made in a more international style, the wine is opaque purple with aromas of toasty new oak, pencil lead, espresso, blackberry, and licorice. This leads to a full-bodied, layered Rioja with lots of spicy black fruits, a hint of chocolate, and enough ripe tannin to support 5-7 years of evolution in the cellar. The lengthy, pure finish suggests that this wine will have a bright future. It should be at its best between 2015 and 2025.
