Bodegas Sierra Cantabria Rioja 2006

Member Review by schellbe:

At first I did not like this. Made in an oaky internmational style, almost dried out. I served it with a spicy vegetarian chilli which cut throught he oak and tannin. A little cherry fruit came through behind all the spiciness and tomato. Not bad match, but I don't think I would buy this wine again.

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.

Deep red. Spicy redcurrant and strawberry on the nose, with subtle spiciness and floral notes building. Clean and focused, with brisk red berry and bitter cherry flavors and no obvious tannins. Elegant, sweet Rioja with impressive finishing lift and cut. This is a great value.
