Winemaker Notes

Vivid ruby. High-pitched aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and spicecake are complemented by a subtle smoky nuance. Zesty, precise sweet red berry flavors display very good depth and focus. Picks up a note of allspice with air and finishes with silky tannins and very good persistence.

Wine Spectator
This dense red is rich with plum, currant and mineral flavors, accented by strong toast and smoky notes. Lively acidity balances the muscular tannins. Powerful, but leaves a juicy, floral finish. Drink now through 2025.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The outstanding 2010 Rioja Reserva Unica is composed of 97% Tempranillo and 3% old vine Graciano aged 24 months in French and American oak barrels. Aromas of tobacco leaf, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrants, licorice and a hint of barbecue smoke emerge from this medium-bodied red. With good flesh, concentration and density as well as excellent balance and a pure, silky, tannic finish...

Sierra Cantabria  Winery Image

Founded by Guillermo Eguren, who is a self-made "bodeguero", coming from a family tradition of vine growers. Today, the fourth generation of the Eguren family, Marcos Eguren, is the winemaker and director of the winery. Sierra Cantabria has come to the forefront of Spanish wineries in the last 15 years. This is from the extreme care that they give to their vineyards, located in the best terrain of Rioja, the savoir-faire of Marcos Eguren, and his price-conscious policies. Vineyards are located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, one of the most famous towns in Rioja, known for the quality of its grapes. The grapes are sourced on 267 acres (108 ha), from 1,440-1,740 ft. above sea level (480-580 m), spread among the towns of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Labastida, and Laguardia. The proportions of grapes are 91% Tempranillo, 3% Malvasia, and 6% Viura. 75% of the production comes from their own vineyards, the rest they buy from local growers. They have been doing ecologically conscious agriculture in their own vineyards for the last 12 years. Average production 0.5 t/acre (hectare is 5,000 kg). The soil is composed of Clay-lime, the best soil of Rioja. The climate is Continental, with the influence of winds from the Atlantic, but protected from more severe weather by the Sierra Cantabria Mountains

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.
