93pts James Suckling

Plenty of pretty fruit with firm tannins and a long, linear finish. Flavors of dark berries, milk chocolate and almonds with an underlying, earthy tone. Supple, but will improve with age. Tempranillo. Drink or hold.

92pts Wine & Spirits
The Eguren family farms 320 acres of vines in Rioja Alavesa, this wine a selection of their tempranillo aged in new American oak casks. It’s inky-black and concentrated, yet it holds itself with graceful power. With air, pretty notes of strawberry and pomegranate emerge, vivid red fruit with a sunny character over the blackness. This would deliver satis-faction at twice the price. Best Buy

The 2016 Eguren Ugarte Cincueta is smooth and delightful. This wine offers aromas and flavors of black fruit and mineral notes. Enjoy it with grilled pork chops. 

 

Winemaker Notes

Raspberry, strawberry and subtle oak aromas comprise the nose on this bold Rioja from a cold vintage. Plum, cherry and raspberry flavors finish fresh and ripped, with nicely structured tannins.
