Made from a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano in the Rioja region of Spain, this spends a touch of time in oak casks which adds spice to the red berried fruit.

Saturated ruby. More powerful than the 04 on the nose, offering deep cherry preserve and plum scents. Displays zestier red fruits on the palate, which is firmed by fine-grained tannins. A suave mineral quality arrives with air, adding energy to the dark fruit qualities. The nicely focused finish is spicy and long.French and American oak prior to bottling without filtration. Dark ruby-colored, the nose exhibits mineral and earth notes as well as plenty of spice and blackberry aromas. Smooth-textured and easy-going, the wine has excellent balance and depth, complex, savory flavors, and a lengthy, pure close.Black cherry, licorice, vanilla and tobacco flavors mingle over firm tannins in this bright red, which is solid and balanced, with a juicy finish. Drink now through 2014. 3,000 cases imported. -TMSierra Cantabria's wines are usually so good that one that's simple, tasty and regular such as this might get overlooked. But if you want an honest crianza with touches of balsam wood, bacon and rubber as well as dry plum and cherry fruit, this is it. Finishes peppery, with full tannins and oak-driven mocha flavor. - M.S.
