Details
Lopez de Heredia is one of the most traditional bodegas in Rioja. Aged in cask for less time than the iconic Vina Tondonia and Vina Bosconia, this "crianza" wine is ready to drink earlier than the other Lopez de heredia wines. Taut tannins, bright fruit and an old-school dusty finish is what Cubillo is all about.

"It's not easy to follow a 2010, but the 2011 Vina Cubillo Tinto Crianza improves with time in the glass, showing much better than expected. 2011 was a warmer year than the 2010, and the wine is a little riper but has great balance and very good harmony. It's a noteworthy red for the price asked." 92 points The Wine Advocate

"Cubillo spends three years in barrique and then in larger cask to await bottling, which happens two years before the expected release. This is very fresh on the nose with quite fresh, ripe blackberries and dark cherries, mahogany and dry, woody spices. The palate is very powerful, juicy and fresh with clear black cherries and plums in abundance. So fresh, fleshy and deep. The freshness is impressive. Long, shell-like tannins. Drink or hold. " 95 points James Suckling
