The wine

This 100% traditionally-styled Tempranillo comes from the Eguren family’s own vineyards in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Labastida. After a manual selection of clusters at harvest and further sorting at the winery, careful vinification processes ensure that an exceptional wine conveying the expressiveness of the Tempranillo grape is ready for traditional oak-ageing. A period of 14 months is spent in French and American oak barrels (used for up to 3 previous wines), with regular racking every 4 months and bottling without filtration.

This is a clean, bright ruby-red coloured wine of medium-high intensity with light orange tones at the rim. Initial aromas of red fruit and spices are well balanced by secondary aromas from ageing (vanilla, cocoa and toast). It is very flavoursome on the palate, with ripe tannins showing through and good alcohol-acidity balance. The fruit-driven flavours have a slight predominance over the toasty notes, vanilla and cocoa, thus creating noticeable complexity.

NOTA: Best stored at a constant temperature lower than 16ºC and preferably in the dark. Ready for drinking now and for the next few years.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The creamy and lactic 2019 Crianza was produced with pure Tempranillo that achieved good ripeness (14%), keeping freshness, the character of the 2019, a drier vintage than average with some heat but not excess, and the ripeness was perfect and the grapes very healthy. This is generously oaked after 14 months in used French and American oak barrels with rackings every six months. Very approachable. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2022.

The winery

Sierra Cantabria

Sierra Cantabria

The Eguren family has historical connections with wine-making dating back to 1870 and now five generations have been intrinsically involved with vine cultivation in La Rioja. Expert knowledge has been accrued then passed on, with technological advances in production warmly accepted but without totally superseding traditional ideas that are based on an overriding respect for the soil and the vine. The winery in San Vicente de la Sonsierra was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren,...
