Sierra Cantabria Crianza 2018
With a bouquet of dark plums, herbes de Provence and tobacco leaf, this wine has flavors of blackberry, black currant, butterscotch, anise and thyme, with downy tannins and a bright, pomegranate-splashed finish.
A well-balanced red in a medium-bodied frame, offering flavors of black fig reduction, leafy tobacco and fresh, loamy earth that show good concentration, with a piercing note of black licorice. Ends with fine tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made, 7,000 cases imported.
Offering real Rioja character, the 2018 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo. Lots of red and black fruits, vanilla oak, cedary spice, and tobacco notes are just some of the nuances on the nose, and it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, some background chocolaty oak, good overall balance, and outstanding length.
