James Suckling – “Enticing aromas of blackberries, leather and cedar with some dried flowers follow through to a medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, citrusy finish. Very traditional and real.” (93 Pts)
R. López de Heredia Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja 2013
Glistening ruby. Spice-accented aromas of red berries, cherry cola and candied rose, plus a smoky nuance in the background. Supple and energetic in style, with a core of zesty acidity adding lift and cut to bitter cherry and red currant flavors that take a sweeter turn through the mid palate. Finishes long and smooth, delivering gentle tannic grip, a snap of peppery spices and repeating florality. Drinking window: 2021 – 2029.
Tempranillo (65%), Garnacho (25%), Mazuelo and Graciano, the rest, all from our own vineyards.
Ageing period in barrels:
