You will like to know that…

Originally, the wines from the wine cellar, Viña Cubillas, has been called Vendimia Especial ('Special yield'). The vines are situated on an altitude of 465 m with an average age of 40 años. Due to the quality of the vineyard's soils, climate and the vines, this cellar could be perfectly used to produce Grandes Reservas. But the winery decided to dedicate these vines specifically for the yearly production of Crianzas just like this Viña Cubillo Crianza 2006.

4 /5

I think the best pairing would be with meat. A good wine to enjoy with good friends.
Cherry colour, high layer. The tobacco smell was strong. I think it was a little bit salty.

Viña Cubillo

3 /5

The border colour was almost brown . In the nose, red fruit and green pepper. A little rough, it may need more time in bottle.
You can take it with any meal.
I gave it to my parents and we tried it together.
Viña Cubillo Crianza 2006 is a good Rioja.

Reviews of other vintages of Viña Cubillo 20062007

4/5

- Clear, bright ruby.
- Fresh and slight aroma to licorice with consistent texture and persistent aroma.
- The taste is smooth, fresh and persistent.
- Classified by The Regulating Council as Excellent as well as the previous year. This harvest was not only good in quality but in quantity both in their own vineyards and in the whole D.O. Rioja. Out of the 170 ha. that they own, in 2005 they had 154 in production.
- The volume of the harvest in 2005 was slighly smaller than 2004, due to the polinization. The vegetative cycle was perfect with no problems during all year. The harvest started 10 days in advance from a normal year starting on September 24th with the White grapes and on September 27th with the red grapes in Vina Tondonia.
- Finished harvesting Vina Cubillo on October 22nd. Suffered a big storm on October the 12th that delayed the finalizing but didn't damage the quality.
- The grapes entered the winery with a good concentration of colour, balance of alcohol content and acidity and good colour intensity.
- All of this made great wines with high vocation of ageing.
