An old school Rioja with classic flavors. Vińa Cubillo Crianza is my go-to-Rioja when I need a wine with substance and character.

91 Pts, The Wine Advocate
The 2007 Viņa Cubillo Crianza is the most affordable red. It is a wine that was born to go with tapas and to be sold at local restaurants showing a combination of fruit and the earth where the vines grow. It is a blend of the usual 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo fermented in old oak vats with natural yeasts and matured in barrel for three years. The intoxicating nose shows blood orange, bitter cherries, leather and spices in a subtle and balanced way. The palate is sinewy, polished, has good acidity and is not terribly complex nor powerful, but is built more on the subtlety and lightness.This could well be the best Cubillo of recent times.

91 Pts, Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Brilliant ruby. Lively smoke- and spice-accented cherry and raspberry aromas are complemented by floral oils and pipe tobacco. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy red fruit flavors that deepen with air. Shows very good energy and appealing floral character on a long, penetrating finish that's given shape by harmonious tannins. Drinking nicely now, this fruit-driven Rioja should provide plenty of pleasure over the coming decade.


Wine maker notes
2007. Clear, bright ruby color. Fresh with a slight aroma of licorice with consistent texture and persistent aroma, comparable to any Rioja Gran Reserva! This Crianza has all the seriousness of an older Reserva.

Technical notes
Lopez de Heredia - one of the most venerable producers in Spain – produces traditional, age worthy red and white Rioja wines. Their wines are legendary and still made the way they were when the winery was founded over a hundred and thirty years ago. Following a tradition that has been passed down through generations, their wines are released at least five to ten years after harvest, which provides added complexity and elegance to their Crianzas and Gran Reservas. A rarity in Rioja, Lopez de Heredia uses only estate bottled fruit from their prized vineyards: Tondoņia, Bosconia, Cubillo and Zaconia. Average vine age is 45 years old and organic farming and natural fermentations are implemented creating wines that exhibit great terroir.
