Tasting Notes

The nose is well balanced with aromas of black cherry, spice and toasty oak. The palate has more bright, intense tangy black cherry and red cherry fruit, with fresh acidity, a silky mouthfeel, soft ripe tannins, with a lingering finish.

Producer details

Raquel, Ruben and Maria Pérez Cuevas are part of the 3rd generation of the Cuevas family to make wine in Rioja Baja. Their father, Gabriel, inherited parcels of vineyards just outside the town of Quel on the higher slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountain range. He was determined to produce wine that embodied the region, where he believed some of the highest quality wines from Rioja are made, and soon acquired more vineyard in the area.

In the vineyard

Produced from 40 year old vines grown on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. The wine is produced predominantly from Tempranillo grown in the La Montesa vineyard, blended with Garnacha from Siete Caminos.

In the winery

Following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.

Food Recommendations

This wine pairs particularly well with roast chicken and game.
