Editorial Reviews for Sierra Cantabria Rioja Reserva Unica

Sweet leather and vanilla notes greet the nose followed by soil tones, hints of smoldering herbs and fine dried raspberry fruit with a hint of wild mushroom. This is broad and just a touch soft on entry but the acidity kicks in to add a lovely brightness here and serve as the tent pole that supports the fairly transparent, earthy and lightly herbal red berry fruit. The tannins are very nicely polished in the mouth yet offer fairly firm support right through the long, clear and lightly spicy cherry and cranberry finish. This is really refreshing and bright in the mouth. A pretty classic example of its type and a lovely food wine. 91pts

The 2009 Reserva Unica (an unfiltered blend of 97% Tempranillo and 3% Graciano) offers up aromas and flavors of lead pencil shavings cedarwood new saddle leather vanillin black currants and blackberries. This attractive elegant medium-bodied flavorful well-textured red should drink nicely for another 5-6 years possibly longer. - Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Deep ruby. Fresh raspberry and floral scents with suave Asian spice and cola qualities adding complexity. Energetic red fruit flavors show excellent balance and sweetness picking up floral pastille and mineral nuances with air. Finishes clean and precise nicely framed by smooth harmonious tannins. In a distinctly elegant style especially for the vintage. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
