Sierra Cantabria Crianza. There is with plenty of fruit, light tannin, and good grip. There is also a sense of elegance. It is a terrific introduction to what Rioja is all about as well as an excellent value.

The creamy and lactic 2019 Crianza was produced with pure Tempranillo that achieved good ripeness (14%), keeping freshness, the character of the 2019, a drier vintage than average with some heat but not excess, and the ripeness was perfect and the grapes very healthy. This is generously oaked after 14 months in used French and American oak barrels with rackings every six months. Very approachable. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2022.
