“The 2007 Viña 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.” Drink 2015-22, 91+ Pts, Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

“Very perfumed with dried berry, iron and mahogany character. Full body, yet subtle and refined. So much finesse and elegance. Aged four years in used barrels.” James Suckling, 93 Pts

Since it was founded in 1877 four generations of the López de Heredia family have devoted themselves to producing exceptional and unique wines. Vineyard care, a scrupulous selection of grapes, ageing in oak barrels (made by their own in house cooper) in the heart of deep underground cellars, and the later ageing in bottles, all contribute to making these illustrious wines with their exceptional bouquet.

This is one of the wine world’s great treasures that has a wonderful history and manages to perfectly balance tradition with modernity (their reception building and new tasting room are of a very modern design).
