RATINGS: 90pts Wine and Spirits

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 & Spirits 92 points- The Eguren family has been farming their vineyards in the Rioja Alta town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra since the 19th century. Those vines produced a gran reserva of quiet sophistication, a wine that emerges from scents of woodsmoke to fleshy black cherry and black mushroom flavors that last. The texture has the luxurious feel of cashmere even as the wine is firmly structured, the integrated tannins and alcohol yielding a warm spice. Decant it for a chicken roasted with root vegetables this winter..December/2017
