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.

(200% new French oak; bottled after 24 months in barrel) Opaque purple. Compelling aromas of candied red and dark berries are complicated by cola, vanilla, floral oil and incense. Sappy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors are given lift and clarity by tangy minerality. Sexy floral pastille and Asian spice qualities gain power with air and carry into the finish. Leaves spicy berry notes behind on the endlessly sweet, captivating finish. This will drink well early, as in now.
