Enticing aromas of blackberries, leather and cedar with some dried flowers follow through to a medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, citrusy finish. Very traditional and real. Drink now.
Viña Cubillo wines come from the vineyard called Viña Cubillas, some 4 kilometers away from the bodega. Historically these wines were called "Special Harvest". Vina Cubillas has an altitude of 410 meters, and the vines have an average age of 40 years. The soil is from the tertiary age and is a mixture of clay and limestone. Viña Cubillas covers 24 hectares, of which 16 hectares are under Tempranillo, 4 hectares of Garnacha, 2 hectares of Mazuelo and 2 hectares of Graciano.
With parcels called "La Encina" and "La Monja", Viña Cubillas is a vineyard that produces exceptional wines sold as Crianza. These wines could be easily be marketed as Gran Reservas due to the exceptional combination of soil, aspect and vines.
