An old school Rioja with classic flavors. Vińa Cubillo Crianza is my go-to-Rioja when I need a wine with substance and character.
~ Oscar, 67Wine Buyer

Rating
The 2006 Vina Cubillo Tinto Crianza is a blend of 65% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho (some wineries, like Lopez de Heredia, Muga or Telmo Rodriguez use the masculine name of Garnacha) and the rest Mazuelo and Graciano. It is aged for three years in used 225-liter American oak barrels (the only ones they use), racked twice per year, fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. It has a dark ruby color with an orange-brownish rim and a nose of red fruit, citric notes of candied orange skin and fresh blood orange, white pepper, balsamic herbs and some raw meat aromas. The palate is very polished, with balsamic flavors, sweet tannins and good acidity. A good traditional Rioja. Drink now-2021.

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.
