Description

This muscular red delivers plum and blackberry flavors, with smoke, tar, forest floor and anise notes. A bit clumsy but forceful. Solid tannins and balsamic acidity add to the structure. A big wine, and needs time. Best from 2020 through 2030. 5,000 cases made.- WS92

The 2014 San Vicente is a single-vineyard Tempranillo from a specific clone of Tempranillo Peludo from a massal selection, matured in new oak barrels (90% French, 10% American) for 20 months. It's very balsamic, with plenty of incense and cigar box aromas, aromatic herbs, forest floor, cured meat and ripe black fruit aromas. The palate also has plenty of spicy flavors and an acid backbone that lifts it up. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2016. - WA92

The Winery

Sierra Cantabria is a leading Spanish wine producer known for its Tempranillo-based range from Rioja and Toro. The company was founded by the Eguren family in 1870, and was previously known as Bodegas Eguren. Fourth generation Marcus Eguren is regarded as one of the country's leading winemakers.

The company is made up of several different bodegas with associated vineyards. The Sierra Cantabria winery is located in the heart of the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja Alta and makes a range of classic Rioja wines from 19 vineyard sites totalling 65 hectares (160 acres). Sierra Cantabria also makes a range of single-vineyard wines from the region, including the Señorio de San Vicente wine from the La Canoca vineyard in the Sierra de Cantabria foothills, which is planted with the near-extinct Tempranillo Peludo.
