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, Spain
Image of winery
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.
