The 2004 Finca El Bosque raises the bar. Its aromatics are already multi-dimensional and very seductive. Satin-textured with the tannins beginning to integrate, it has remarkable depth, succulent spicy black fruit flavors, as well as another 8-10 years of cellaring potential. It is one of the finest wines of a great vintage. Bodegas Sierra Cantabria is another outstanding Rioja estate owned and operated by the Eguren family. The highlight of my visit in May, 2010 was a vertical of their two renowned single vineyard wines, Amancio and Finca El Bosque. Not to be overlooked is their complete portfolio of new releases, several of which are superb values. The Amancio cuvee comes from a single vineyard of the same name. There is a severe triage in the vineyard before the grapes reach the sorting table. It spends 24 months in new French oak using a “200% new oak” aging regimen before bottling without fining or filtration. The Finca El Bosque Vineyard is a 4 acre parcel of Tempranillo planted on gravel in 1973. The wine is put through ML in new oak and spends 18 months in new, mostly French oak.

Lavish oak loads this muscular red with smoke, toast, even charry aromas and flavors. Thick on the palate, with assertive tannins that dominate a core of bright cherry and blackberry fruit. An extreme style, but the concentration and intensity are impressive. Best from 2007 through 2017. 50 cases imported.

What a superb combination of new oak, leather, mineral, mocha and berry fruit this wine delivers. It's a giant, with a ripped palate of upfront boysenberry and then coffee and vanilla in support. All the power, precision and other attributes of modern Rioja are on display. Best in a few more years.
