2 stars "Dark color. Notes of medicinal herbs and camphor. On the palate, feels like a still young wine. Medium-bodied, with some acidity that makes it somewhat unbalanced. Not a very long finish. An old fashioned Rioja. Tasted again the day after. The somewhat unpleasant smell was gone and replaced by a nicer fruity nose."

"This Rioja bodega must be one of the world's great value wineries…Readers depressed about the skyrocketing prices for well-known Italian, French, and Californian wines, should realize that Sierra Cantabria's wines offer spectacular relief from high prices. They are remarkable values."
