Founded by Guillermo Eguren, who is a self-made "bodeguero", coming from a family tradition of vine growers. Today, the fourth generation of the Eguren family, Marcos Eguren, is the winemaker and director of the winery. Sierra Cantabria has come to the forefront of Spanish wineries in the last 15 years. This is from the extreme care that they give to their vineyards, located in the best terrain of Rioja, the savoir-faire of Marcos Eguren, and his price-conscious policies.

Vineyards are located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, one of the most famous towns in Rioja, known for the quality of its grapes. The grapes are sourced on 267 acres (108 ha), from 1,440-1,740 ft. above sea level (480-580 m), spread among the towns of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Labastida, and Laguardia.


Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(97% tempranillo and 3% old-vines graciano; aged for two years in small French and American oak barrels): Opaque ruby. Highly aromatic bouquet displays scents of black raspberry, Asian spices and potpourri, with a bright mineral nuance contributing precision. Spicy and penetrating, boasting excellent clarity to its lively flavors of red berries, rose pastille and spicecake. Reminds me a lot of a sexy, ripe New World pinot. This graceful wine shows potent floral and spice character on the long, sappy, gently tannic finish." - Josh Raynolds (Sep 2014)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"This dense red is rich with plum, currant and mineral flavors, accented by strong toast and smoky notes. Lively acidity balances the muscular tannins. Powerful, but leaves a juicy, floral finish. Drink now through 2025. 500 cases made." - TM (Sep 30th, 2014)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The outstanding 2010 Rioja Reserva Única is composed of 97% Tempranillo and 3% old vine Graciano aged 24 months in French and American oak barrels. Aromas of tobacco leaf, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrants, licorice and a hint of barbecue smoke emerge from this medium-bodied red. With good flesh, concentration and density as well as excellent balance and a pure, silky, tannic finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-7 years." - RP (Nov 27th, 2014)
