Smooth, rich, bold. Starts off mild to medium bodied and finishes pretty thick and chewy.

Glass-staining ruby. Assertive aromas of red berries, rose and spicecake, with a hint of smoke. Silky and sweet, with fresh raspberry and floral flavors and tangy back-end lift. In an elegant, precise style, with very good finishing clarity and length. This is drinking very well right now. This red is focused and compact, showing cherry, leafy, light tobacco and smoky flavors on a light-bodied structure, with bright acidity and just enough tannins for grip. Drink now. 3,000 cases imported. -TM

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.

The 2006 Sierra Cantabria Crianza was sourced from 3 vineyard sites and aged for 15 months in seasoned American oak before bottling without filtration. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a pleasing perfume of wood smoke, pencil lead, spice box, violets, and blackberry. On the palate it leans toward elegance with a silky texture, some finesse, and succulent flavors. This balanced Rioja will evolve for 1-2 years and offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021. (100% tempranillo) Bright ruby. Mineral-driven aromas of cherry, coffee, mocha, game, sassafras and oak. The bitter cherry, tar and herbal flavors show a juicy quality and are nicely framed by dusty tannins. Finishes with very good freshness and a strong echo of musky herbs and graphite. This will be even better for two or three years of bottle aging. Like almost all wines from this label, the welcome mat is rolled out. The nose shows textbook tea, herb, black cherry and leathery notes, while the palate is round, pure in feel, and full, with sous bois, light oak and dark fruit flavors. Long and persistent on the finish. A wine that gets it right. M.S. Black cherry fruit is ripe and sweet in this fresh, medium-bodied red, backed by modest tannins and lively acidity. Features tobacco, vanilla and spice accents. Drink now through 2012. 2,000 cases imported. -TM

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.
