Sierra Cantabria Cuvee Especial 6 bottle case, 12 month of aging in French and American oak

The Wine Advocate 89 rating tasting notes, Sierra Cantabria Cuvee Especial

Like many of their reds, the 2017 Cuvée is Tempranillo. But this one comes from an eight-hectare single vineyard called La Llana in the village of Labastida. It matured in French and 15% American oak barrels (40% new) for 12 months. It's from alluvial soils, and they want the wine to show the freshness of Labastida. Despite being a 2015, it has more red fruit. This is the first single-vineyard wine, and it's one they can do good volume with, so an affordable wine. It mixes red berries and spice, quite open and aromatic (it reminds me of some 2016s). The palate is medium-bodied and has fine-grained tannins and a dusty, dry finish.

Under the premise of getting great wines from unique and exclusive vineyards, they started their hard word on the estates La Llana, Los Terreros, Jararte, El Bosque and La Veguilla, where deeply characteristic wines such as Sierra Cantabria Cuvee, Sierra Cantabria Organza, Sierra Cantabria Colección Privada, Finca El Bosque and Amancio were born.

Wines that are the result of a meticulous artisanal elaboration, in many cases with the bunches de-stalked by hand and crushed in the traditional way in order to achieve the smoothest possible extraction.
All this from a winecellar that was constructed by the family using the stone from their very own estate, as a tribute to the earth which both they and their land form a part of.
