Sierra Cantabria Rioja Crianza 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

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. - Stephen Tanzer 90 PointsThis 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 - Wine Spectator Magazine 85 Points

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.
