    Winemaker's Notes:

    Fruity red, with a spicy/toasted edge. Well balanced with a persistence of tempranillo and a touch of Graciano.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Sierra Cantabria Crianza was sourced from 3 vineyard sites and aged for 15 months in seasoned American oak before bottling without filtration. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits a pleasing perfume of wood smoke, pencil lead, spice box, violets, and blackberry. On the palate it leans toward elegance with a silky texture, some finesse, and succulent flavors. This balanced Rioja will evolve for 1-2 years and offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021.

    Bright ruby. Mineral-driven aromas of cherry, coffee, mocha, game, sassafras and oak. The bitter cherry, tar and herbal flavors show a juicy quality and are nicely framed by dusty tannins. Finishes with very good freshness and a strong echo of musky herbs and graphite. This will be even better for two or three years of bottle aging.

    I bought the wine because I like Riojas and was looking for a deal. I didn't expect much from the wine and was pleasantly surprised as I sipped a very cherry-fruit with slight spice, yet also smooth Rioja. If you enjoy medium bodied Pinots and Cabs, give this wine a try!
