Founded by the Eguren family in 1870, Sierra Cantabria is one of the leading Spanish wineries and is known for its range of Tempranillo-based wines produced in the Rioja and Toro regions. The current winemaker, Marcus Eguren, is the fourth generation of the family to continue the tradition and is considered to be one of Spain’s top winemakers. This selection is 100% Tempranillo from 40+ year old vines from a single, 3.5-acre vineyard in the Sierra Cantabria foothills. The vineyard is fully sustainable and the grapes are picked, sorted, selected and destemmed by hand for the resulting 100 case production of this tour de force.


"Intense cherry. Aroma with marked emphasis of tasty notes of oak and black fruit, mineral background. Powerful palate, warm, flavoursome with tannins of oak still marked against those of fruit, hints of great length, mineral back aroma with traces of ripe fruit." - Winery Notes


We recently had a bottle of this and it is flat-out a brilliant wine. An explosion of fresh, dark fruit immediately hits your nose upon the first sniff. The wine is full, rich, round an elegant. The first sip reveals the black and blue fruits first perceived plus notes of licorice, tobacco, balsamic, cocoa, burnt toast and a subtle spiciness that continues in your mouth as you take a sip of the wine. Simply superb! This wine is drinking great right now but will undoubtedly have at least another decade or more of pleasure to give.

95 WA: "Like the 2009, the 2010 Finca El Bosque is produced from the fruit of a single 1.5-hectare vineyard and undergoes a similar upbringing. The nose seems impenetrable and requires time and perhaps an energetic decanting to display fine aromas of ripe black fruit, fine spices with echoes of the soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied, keeping the balance and poise with a distinct violet finish. A great vintage for El Bosque, which being a powerful wine benefits greatly from cooler vintages. 4,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2015-2028." - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

 

94 VM: "(all tempranillo; aged for 18 months in new French and Central European oak and racked every four months): Glass-staining ruby. Black and blue fruits and incense on the flamboyantly perfumed nose. Lush, palate-coating cassis and blueberry flavors show excellent clarity and become spicier with air. Notes of licorice and mocha come up on the finish, which clings with superb tenacity and smooth, sweet tannins." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
