"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."
The R. Lopez de Heredia estate has been making some of the finest wines from Rioja for over 140 years. Their name is synonymous with top quality and consistency throughout their entire lineup of wines, and that tradition continues with their 2011 Cubillo. Tempranillo drives the elegance here, while Garnacha provides the weight and depth.
Perfumed notes of cherry, soft wood and spice box permeate this gorgeous wine, and entice you back into the glass after each sip. The finish is long, smooth and with each passing second there is a new layer of flavor unwrapped.
This is serious, serious juice that makes you do a double-take on the price as the quality and complexity in the glass punch way above this sub-$25 price point.
Lopez de Heredia once again showcases what a tremendous value there is to be found in Rioja, and this Cubillo is not to be missed!!
