Robert Parker gave a rating of 93 out of 100 to the Senorio de San Vicente San Vicente Rioja, Spain

In search of a wine which showed the true potential of the Sonsierra Tempranillo, the Eguren family founded in 1991, Señorío de San Vicente. Their philosophy was to create a single wine, San Vicente from a single vineyard, La Canoca from one grape variety Tempranillo Peludo, a variety which is autochthonous to the area, with unique characteristics and a low production. If we went back to the early 80s we would find Guillermo Eguren starting a mass selection of grapevines of the Tempranillo variety among the family most balanced old vineyards. He then chose grapevines with low vigour, low production and reduced size of the clusters. A few years later, in 1985, in one of the spots of higher altitude of the municipality of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a limited area of cultivation, planting was carried out in a field of about 18 Ha called La Canoca. This privileged place is characterized by a rugged topography with abundant south-facing slopes, all of them settled in the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria, which protects the enclave from the cold north winds.
