Lo bueno siempre viene en pequeñas dosis. Es el caso de Finca El Bosque de Viñedos Sierra Cantabria, que proviene de un pequeño viñedo de tan sólo 1,48 hectáreas que se circunscribe en una tenue ladera protegida por la sierra del mismo nombre.

I was truly impressed by the elegance, finesse and balance of the 2019 El Bosque, which shows very integrated oak and velvety tannins. It comes from deep gravel soils that produce powerful wines, but somehow this 2019 is very elegant, and it's already approachable. For Marcos Eguren, this shows what El Bosque is. This matured in new oak barrels, 95% of them French and the rest from central Europe. 5,000 bottles were filled in July 2021.
Finca El Bosque is a 1.48-hectare parcel of gravel soils planted in 1973 on the Briones side of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Often the most powerful red in the Egurens' range - and there's competition for the title - it wouldn’t look out of place in a line-up of Bordeaux Crus Classés.
Floral aromas lead you into a palate of blackberry, blackcurrant and coffee bean underpinned by acidity. 2026-37
This has very fine tannins and is driven, with a long, linear finish. Subtle and complex aromas and flavors of dark berries, minerals, sage and lavender bush. Medium body. Fresh finish. A little tight at the end. Drink or hold.
