Winemaker Notes

Sierra Cantabria Reserva Unica is the result of a selection for the finest wine that is destined for Sierra Cantabria Reserva. The selected wine is then submitted to a more luxurious barrel regimen and delicate treatment. The result is a beautifully expressive, juicy, open, and opulent wine with elegant tannin, and incredibly clean aromatics.

Blend: 97% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano Old Vines

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2014 Sierra Cantabria Reserva Única is a cellar selection of the best barrels of the Reserve, selected with the idea of making a big, rich wine that can drink well in its youth yet also age. Blackberry, blueberry, violet, peach pit, graphite, and lead pencil notes all flow to a rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced red that has good acidity, fine tannin, and a great finish. This sexy, decadent, layered beauty shouldn't be missed! The 2014 is made from 98% Tempranillo and 2% Graciano, all aged 24 months in a mix of French and American oak, 30% being new.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Reserva Única is mostly Tempranillo with 2% Graciano, which fermented destemmed with indigenous selected yeasts and matured in oak barrels for 24 months, including malolactic. The grapes come from vineyards in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. It's clean, modern and fruit-driven, with the oak in the background and good freshness. It has juicy fruit and a soft, velvety mouthfeel. Very tasty. They made 128 barrels of this, or 38,600 bottles. It was bottled in February 2017.

Sierra Cantabria Winery Video

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria was founded by Guillermo Eguren, a self-made bodeguero, who was, in the family tradition, a viticulturist. His family, native to San Vicente de La Sonsierra, one of the most sought-after terroirs in Rioja, had grown grapes in Rioja Alta and Alavesa since the 1870’s. For decades the family sold their grapes to local producers, but Guillermo recognized the potential that his family's vineyards had to create great wine and founded Bodegas Sierra Cantabria in 1957. Today, the fourth generation of the Eguren family directs all aspects of the winemaking process, with Marcos Eguren as the winemaker and director of operations and his brother Miguel Angel Eguren as the general manager. The family still prides themselves as viticulturists first, and as a result, all the grapes are estate grown. As viticulturists in Rioja Alavesa, they grow a vast majority of Tempranillo, with only a small percentage of Garnacha and Graciano, as they recognize that Garnacha and Graciano do not ripen reliably in northern Rioja.

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria is the family's original winery and comprises a collection of their most classic style Rioja wines. Due to their viticultural background, the family’s wines are composed of mostly Tempranillo, as they recognize that Garnacha and Graciano do not ripen reliably in Northern Rioja.

Although the family's business has evolved over the years through the foundation of other projects, Bodegas Sierra Cantabria comprises their most traditional, classic styled wines. The wines are made from a blend of selected vineyards, as opposed to Viñedos Sierra Cantabria, which is the family's collection of single vineyard wines.

Rioja

Tempranillo

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.
