70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 5% Graciano & 5% Mazuelo​


93/100 James Suckling, August 2018 (2009 Vintage)
"Considering that this is the producer’s simplest red, it has an astonishing stature and sophistication. Nuances of tobacco and soy sauce as well as ripe plums and a great balance of fruit and precisely crafted dry tannins and a firm, but polished finish. Drink or hold."


92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, February 2018 (2009 Vintage)
"The red they say was born to go with tapas and sold in local restaurants is the 2009 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza. 2009 was a warm and ripe year, and this blend of Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha (or the masculine Garnacho they like to use) plus 5% each Graciano and Mazuelo from limestone soils with quite a lot of clay, feels juicy and soft. It fermented with natural yeasts in large oak vats and matured in used barriques for three years. This is a bottling that has grown and improved a lot since 2004-2005. It shows very good balance between fruit and more developed aromas, with hints of leather and cherries, spices and smoke, very clean and with good volume in the palate. It's usually a little riper and with higher alcohol than Tondonia or Bosconia, with the character, finesse and elegance of a classical Reserva."


92/100 Wine & Spirits December 2018 (2009 Vintage)
"Mercedes López de Heredia blends this wine from 40-year-old vines near the winery in Haro, this vintage 65 percent tempranillo, 25 percent garnacha, the balance mazuelo and graciano. While the color looks mature for the wine’s age, this 2009 has the resistance to oxygen that makes the family’s Riojas so compelling. The texture is silky and soft, carrying notes of red plum skin and peach pit, tobacco and cedar, building generosity as it takes on air."
