The Sierra Cantabria Crianza is a delicious full Rioja well balanced. Absolute must. This wine is made from the Tempranillo. The Crianza has been educated for 14 months on French and American oak. Its color is ruby red with light violet in the edges of the glass. In the nose a bouquet of red fruit (berries, black currants) is released, with nice intensity, hints of roasted coffee graphite and vanilla. Its taste has a good structure, good balance between tannins, alcohol and acids. Fresh mature fruit is in perfect balance with the characteristics of the elderly (spices, roasted coffee, noble wood). The finish leaves a nice lightly toasted memory with an accurate mouthfeel and a hairy finish. This is a nice magnum of 1.5 liters and the 2016 has received no less than 91/100 Parker points.

We can also recommend the entire range of Hermanos Eguren wines. Absolute Top Rioja's.
