Bodegas Sierra Cantabria Tempranillo Rioja Crianza 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 89 The 2005 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo aged for 15 months in 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. Wine Spectator Review Rated 88 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.

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.
