RATINGS: 90pts Wine Spectator; 91pts Vinous

Sierra Cantabria was founded by Guillermo Eguren, a self made bodeguero, who followed a family tradition of vine growers. Today, the fourth generation of the Eguren family directs all aspects of the winemaking process, with Marcos Eguren as the winemaker and director of operations and his brother Miguel Angel Eguren as the general manager.

Vinedos Sierra Cantabria vineyards are also harveted by hand choosing the best possible fruit and eliminating those bunches that are not in perfect ripening condition, and carrying them to the cellar in 44 lb. (20 kg.) baskets.

Tasting Notes: Wine Spectator 90 points- This juicy red offers fresh flavors of cherry, blood orange and licorice. Light tannins and citrusy acidity give backbone to the round texture. Balanced and lively. Drink now through 2023. 5,000 cases made. TM.November/2017

Vinous 91 points- (aged for 15 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels that range between three and five years old) Brilliant ruby. Pungent red berry and cherry scents are energized by mineral and pipe tobacco notes. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air and smoothly blend richness and liveliness. Finishes supple and long, with gentle tannic grip and a lingering suggestion of candied flowers..January/2017
