Winemaker Notes

Of a deep and shiny ruby red color with shades of garnet, this wine shows very intense and complex on the nose where hints of this wine's stay in oak stand out (coffee, spices, leather, toastiness) well integrated with stewed fruit and nuts. The first impressions on the palate are mellow, evolving towards a powerful and structured finish with a long aftertaste. Tannins show sweet, restrained and very well integrated in the wine's structure. It is a wine with a great ageing potential in bottle.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Gran Reserva is produced from 90-95% Tempranillo and the rest Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in inox. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in both French and American oak barrels where is aged for two years. During the aging process the wine is frequently racked, a natural way to make it clean and stable. The wine should be available in mid-2014, and it’s still resting in bottle. It has a serious character, a bit savage, slightly reduced at the moment, with fresh fruit (both red and black), murky, spicy aromas (nutmeg) and hints of smoke. The tannins are very fine-grained, it’s medium-bodied, with good acidity, very balanced, with great weight of fruit and a mineral finish. It has great intensity and harmony, and should age for a long time, resulting in one great classical wine. A great Gran Reserva that should please fans of both traditional and more modern wines at a very good price. Drink 2015-2028.

Wine Spectator
Very solid for the vintage, with crushed plum, fig and black current fruit nicely woven with maduro tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes. There's a loam edge on the finish, but this stays solidly fleshy through the end. Drink now through 2013.

CVNE, Spain
Image of winery

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.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

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.
