2012 SIERRA CANTABRIA “GARNACHA” RIOJA
Performing leagues above its price level, Sierra Cantabria’s 2012 Garnacha stems from an ancient vineyard planted in 1927. Intellectually pleasing, this beauty sports terrific volume on the palate, accentuated by round tannins supporting notions of spice box, violets, plums, cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s already merited stellar reviews from two of the world’s top critics, and at just $24/btl, this wine delivers a seriously high level of quality.
Surfacing from a single vineyard in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, this colossally extracted, 100% Garnacha rests for year in barrel before bottling. Evolving for over 3 years in the bottle, this terrific interpretation of Garnacha is really drinking beautifully. If you haven’t experienced a Garnacha from this remarkable region, this is the perfect opportunity to expand your horizons and try this world-class red. You’ll be very glad you did!

2012 SIERRA CANTABRIA "GARNACHA" RIOJA
From Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, "The outstanding 2012 Garnacha ratchets up the level of concentration, has similar character to the 2011, but more intensity, purity and depth as well as slightly more structure. It should drink nicely for another 5-7 years." 91 Points
From Antonio Galloni's Vinous, "Saturated ruby. Heady, spice-laced blackberry liqueur and floral pastille scents are complemented by white pepper and smoky minerals. More masculine and brooding in style than its 2011 sibling, offering intense dark berry and cherry flavors and suggestions of licorice and allspice. Finishes broad, smooth and long, with supple tannins building slowly. These vines were planted in 1927." 91 Points
