Parentage of the grape: None found. It is an ancient variety.

History of the grape: Though it is easily the most interesting and unique red grape in Rioja, its yields are low, it is prone to downy mildew, and it ripens extremely late. Thus, the cooler parts of Rioja are completely unsuitable for it. Indeed, a local joke has it that the name of the grape comes from the typical vigneron’s response when asked to grow it Read more »

  • Cune Reserva 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Decidedly modern when first opened with dark fruits, moderate acidity and very light tannins. On the second day the fruit had tamed a little and more acid showed but still no tannin. Very good but not your fathers Rioja. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Quite darkpretty much, opaquein the glass. Modest barnyard nose. On the tongue I am surprised at the lack of fruitthere is some dark berry fruit there, but it is very light and pretty sour. Lots of dustiness which gives a puckery sensation. What do you expect for Read More

  • Pata Negra Rioja Reserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

I cant believe a) that other people liked this wine, and b) that based upon that, I bought more than ... Read More

    Dusty, earthy and smoky with a strong tendril of red fruit pushing out through the minerality, mostly strawberry and raspberry with some molasses and fresh spice. The palate continues the trend of dusty, meaty, earthy salinity warring with bright red fruit notes of strawberry, cranberry and cherry, finishing in a harmonious end that's even a bit... Read More
