This is a huge reduction in price versus what we use to sell it for. Fantastic buying for a modern yet classic wine style.

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria is the family's original winery, and comprises a collection of their most classic style Rioja wines. Due to their viticultural background, the family’s wines are composed of mostly Tempranillo, as they recognize that Garnacha and Graciano do not ripen reliably in Northern Rioja.

Sierra Cantabria Selección is the entry level wine to Sierra Cantabria’s classic line of wines. A fruit forward, with smooth, round tannins and good acidity. Very well balanced with a long finish. 100% Tempranillo from their proprietary vineyards in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Laguardia.

"​Smoky cherry, blackberry and pipe tobacco on the perfumed nose. Sweet, fresh and velvety, offering creamy cherry and dark berry flavours and a hint of cracked pepper." Winery

"Bright ruby-red. Pungent floral and spicy aromas of cherry, raspberry and vanilla show sharp focus and lift. Silky in texture and appealingly sweet, offering sappy red fruit flavours and a hint of white pepper. The cherry note returns on a lively, persistent finish framed by subtle, even tannin's. Drinking window: 2021 – 2027." 90/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2021
