The Reserva Unica spent 24 months in a combination of 60% French oak and 40% American oak. It was bottled without filtration and is an outstanding wine made from their vineyards that are over 30 years of age. Loads of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, vanilla, blackcurrants and black cherries jump from the glass and flavors of this full-bodied wine that has light tannin in the finish. This wine is still youthful and likely to improve over the next few years and last for a decade or more. The final blend was 98% Tempranillo and 2% Graciano.
Sierra Cantabria Reserva, The 2014 is 100% Tempranillo, aged 14 months in French and American small oak. A rather classic wine, with notes of graphite, black currant and black cherry, roasted herbs, unsmoked cigar tobacco and toasty oak. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Sierra Cantabria Seleccion, As for the red wines, which is 100% Tempranillo aged in a combination of tank and American and French oak barrels. The wine is soft and easygoing, with attractive tapenade notes intermixed with graphite, black cherry and toasty fruit notes. It is an easygoing, straightforward Rioja to drink over the next year or so.
