Sierra Cantabria Rioja Reserva Unica 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): (97% tempranillo and 3% graciano; aged for 24 months in French and American oak...): 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. (Sep/Oct 2013)

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.

Toasty and smoky notes accent the rich plum and chocolate flavors in this broad balanced red. Features muscular tannins and a savory character that should match well with hearty dishes. Drink now through 2019. - TM Wine Spectator.

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.
