Cuesta de las Liebres 2014 con estuche
Delicioso de principio a fin, Cuesta de las Liebres es un vino que solo se produce en las mejores añadas de la casa. Un vino que constituye una categoría en sí mismo y que destaca por su elegancia y su final largo y redondo. Al igual que El Anejón, este vino se presenta con estuche.

Opinión de los críticos
The vineyard-designate 2014 Cuesta de Las Liebres shows a lot more oak than the regular red blend from 2015. It's a wine that is not produced every year, and in 2014, it achieved 15% alcohol and moderate acidity. It's very concentrated, dark and powerful in a generous and voluptuous style with plenty of oak. For fans of the style, as it is nicely crafted but a little warm for my taste. 7,000 bottles and some magnums were filled in May 2017.
Quite bold with rich mulberries and plums framed in sweet coconut and vanilla-oak on the palate. Ripe, fleshy and full of flavorsome fruit. Drink or hold.
A wine that flirts with perfection, the 2014 Cuesta de las Liebres (100% Tinto Fino) comes from a terraced hillside vineyard located 900 meters above sea-level and spent two years in small French oak casks. Its deep purple color is followed by a thrilling bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed flowers, spice, and subtle vanilla-laced wood characteristics. These carry to a full-bodied Ribera del Duero that has a stacked mid-palate, building yet incredibly polished tannins, no hard edges, and a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. This is a blockbuster, sensational wine that delivers the goods. It’s unquestionably approachable today yet should benefit from another year or two and keep for 15-20. Bravo!
