Why do we love this wine?

A wine needs to be next level in order for a critic of James Suckling’s calibre to call it phenomenal. That wine is this garnacha (grenache) from one of Rioja’s best - Sierra Cantabria - part of the empire that has been owned and run by the Erugen family since 1870. That’s a long time.

This particular wine comes from 93-year-old vines and is a great example of old vine Rioja garnacha. There is power, depth and an infinite amount of detail in each glass. The wine will improve with a decant and also improve with a few more years in bottle. There’s dense layers of dark fruits like plums and figs, sitting beautifully with earthy and herbaceous notes. There’s enough tannin to let you know you’re drinking Rioja, but in balance with the fruit.
