Winemaker Notes

Garnet color with violet notes on the meniscus. In the nose it is surprisingly aromatic especially emphasized the red fruits and licorice in balance with the aromas from the American barrel which reminds us of vanilla and cocoa with some caramel. Its smooth entry into the mouth takes you to a round step with a long fruity retro-tail.

It is a pleasant fresh and perfect companion wine for all the dishes of the Mediterranean diet.

Blend: 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha tinta and Mazuelo.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cune Crianza is a traditional blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% split between Garnacha and Mazuelo. The wine is sold at unbelievable prices, and 2015 is one of the best vintages in recent times. It fermented in stainless steel vats with neutral yeasts and matured in American oak barrels for one year. They like to keep their house style while also showing the nuances of the year, which is fuller, riper and more balanced than the two previous years. It's approachable, with red fruit intermixed with spices and a creamy touch. The palate is soft and approachable, with fine tannins and lively acidity. It's easy to drink and very good with food.

CVNE, Spain
Banner image for winery header

Cvne, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.

In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.

The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
