Sierra Cantabria Colección Privada portrays the maximum expressiveness of Tempranillo from our 50+ year old vineyards, Los Terreros and Jararte. We apply the same viticulture as our great grandparents, with more than a century of experience as grapegrowers in the search of the natural balance of the plant. The winemaking, as in the past, combines the carbonic maceration and the traditional vinification. Once completed the alcoholic fermentation, the ensemble is done and, afterwards, the malolactic fermentation takes place in new French oak and American oak in which the wine ages 18 months. The final wine is seductive: elegant in the nose, silky in the mouth with a fluid and creamy finish. Its long memories are of an unctuous wine, with matured red fruit ensembled with lactic notes and spices and nuances of undergrowth.
"The 2008 Collecion Privada was sourced from 2 vineyards ranging in age from 55-60 years. It was aged for 18 months in 100% new French and American oak. Loaded with spice, incense, and floral notes along with toasty oak and black fruits, on the palate it is dense, round, plush, and succulent. Give this pleasure-bent Rioja another 5-6 years of cellaring and enjoy it through 2028."
The Wine Advocate
"A little scratchy on the nose, but otherwise it exudes pure aromas of cassis and raspberry. The palate is juicy, racy and snappy but full and structured, while the flavors of raspberry, plum and blackberry get sweetness in the form of coconut and vanilla-infused coffee. Less soft and bodied than previous vintages but a big winner nonetheless."
