Lopez de Heredia Vina Cubillo Tinto Crianza 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Viña Cubillo Crianza is the most affordable red. It is a wine that was born to go with tapas and to be sold at local restaurants showing a combination of fruit and the earth where the vines grow. It is a blend of the usual 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo fermented in old oak vats with natural yeasts and matured in barrel for three years. The intoxicating nose shows blood orange, bitter cherries, leather and spices in a subtle and balanced way. The palate is sinewy, polished, has good acidity and is not terribly complex nor powerful, but is built more on the subtlety and lightness.This could well be the best Cubillo of recent times. 95,000 bottles produced...91+" Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate 04/15 "Very perfumed with dried berry, iron and mahogany character. Full body, yet subtle and refined. So much finesse and elegance. Aged four years in used barrels. Drink now...93" JS 7/15
