2019 Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica
The Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica has a very good price-quality ratio. Full, complex red wine. The Reserva Unica spent 24 months in French oak Bordelaise barrels (60%) and American oak Bordelaise barrels (40%), 30% new oak and 70% up to 3-year wine barrels. It is mainly Tempranillo with a few percent to Graciano. Bottled without filtration, it is an excellent wine and comes from vineyards older than 30 years located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). All Sierra Cantabria wines work through sustainable agricultural cultivation.
The Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica is bright ruby red in the glass. Expressive aromas of currant, cherry, licorice. Juicy on the palate, with red fruit flavors mixed with toasted vanilla and underlying mineral notes. In the nose, tobacco, licorice, vanilla, black currants and black cherries jump out of the glass. In the mouth, this full bodied wine still has light tannins in the aftertaste. The perfect acidity extends the long, spicy, flower-dominated finish. This wine is still young and will improve in the coming years. The Spanish winery Sierra Cantabria was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren. This Reserva Unica is therefore one of the beautiful wines from the Hermanos Eguren collection.

The Spanish winery Sierra Cantabria was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren and is one of Hermanos Eguren's beautiful wineries. Sierra Cantabria is located in the Rioja in a unique location between the River Ebro and the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. The Sierra Cantabria Mountains (1200m.) And the River Ebro (350m.) Provide a special microclimate with Mediterranean and continental features - mild winters and mild summers, unique to wine growing.
On the other hand, the thermal summer jump (intense heat during the day with fresh night temperatures) increases the polyphenol content, which makes for excellent quality wines with a distinctive character.
The vineyards of Bodega Sierra Cantabria are mainly located in the towns of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Labastida and Laguardia, an area very well known for wine growing.
The Tempranillo variety predominates, along with small amounts of Garnacha, Viura and 'Hairy Tempranillo', all of which are grown in vineyards about 35 years old, although there are also plots up to 70 years old.The harvest is carried out by hand every year, paying special attention to the rigorous selection of the grapes that are the soul of the wine, in optimal condition and in perfect ripening conditions. The careful harvest is followed by a thorough separation of the bunches, which is done on a selection table at the entrance of the winery. Winemaking is aimed at minimal intervention in the winery to fully respect the character of the terroir
