Sierra Cantabria Gran Reserva 2009
Un buen representante de las típicas largas crianzas de Rioja, este Gran Reserva ha permanecido casi diez años en la bodega y nos transporta con sus matices primarios a la ya lejana vendimia de 2009. El equilibrio de la madurez y la frutosidad de la Sonsierra riojana en un vino. Procede de las fincas en altitud de la bodega en las localidades de San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Labastida y Laguardia.

Opinión de los críticos
The Gran Reserva ages for longer before it's released, and the current vintage is the 2009 Gran Reserva, which contains 2% Graciano but is mostly Tempranillo. It matured in American oak barrels for 26 months. The 2009 is a warm and ripe vintage and has more black fruit than red and is very spicy, with notes of licorice. It feels a little reductive but benefits from time in the glass, where it develops more and more notes of aromatic herbs and its balsamic side of cigar ash and incense. It's medium to full-bodied with tannins that are mostly resolved, polished and soft, with moderate acidity. A clean, classical Gran Reserva at a very good price. 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2012.
A dense and very beautiful red with dark berries, hints of chocolate and some mahogany. Full body. Layered. Shows focus and balance. Lovely, linear and energetic nature. Drink or hold.
