Winemaker Notes

Tempranillo 100%.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Finca El Bosque is purple/black in color with a perfume of wood smoke, graphite, truffle, espresso, black cherry, and blackberry. Full-bodied, voluptuous, and already complex, it possesses 8-10 years of aging potential. Its drinking window will reach from 2018 to 2037.

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria is another outstanding Rioja estate owned and operated by the Eguren family. The highlight of my visit in May, 2010 was a vertical of their two renowned single vineyard wines, Amancio and Finca El Bosque. The Finca El Bosque Vineyard is a 4 acre parcel of Tempranillo planted on gravel in 1973. The wine is put through ML in new oak and spends 18 months in new, mostly French oak.

Wine Spectator

Blackberry and pomegranate flavors are accented by cocoa and cardamom in this exotic red. There's a plush yet elegant texture, supported by fine acidity and well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2014.

Wine Enthusiast

Rich, smoky and heady, with earthy black fruit aromas that fold in mocha and vanilla. The palate runs fairly crisp and firm for a big wine, with black cherry, spice, peppercorn and herbal flavors. Super lively, tight and showing cola and lemon peel on the woody finish. Drink from 2012-2018.
