Winemaker Notes

Raspberry, strawberry, and subtle oak aromas comprise the nose on this bold Rioja from a cold vintage. Plum, cherry, and raspberry flavors finish fresh and ripped, with nicely structured tannins.

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling

Plenty of pretty fruit with firm tannins and a long, linear finish. Flavors of dark berries, milk chocolate and almonds with an underlying, earthy tone. Supple, but will improve with age. Tempranillo. Drink or hold.

Wine & Spirits

The Eguren family farms 320 acres of vines in Rioja Alavesa, this wine a selection of their tempranillo aged in new American oak casks. It’s inky-black and concentrated, yet it holds itself with graceful power. With air, pretty notes of strawberry and pomegranate emerge, vivid red fruit with a sunny character over the blackness. This would deliver satis-faction at twice the price. Best Buy

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Eguren Ugarte Cincueta is smooth and delightful. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers aromas and flavors of black fruit and mineral notes. Enjoy it with grilled pork chops. (Tasted; June 4, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Eguren Ugarte Ugarte Vineyards Winery Image

Founded in 1870 by Anastasio Eguren in the Rioja territory of Eguren Ugarte is a 140-year-old landmark family-owned winery known as one of the longest-standing vineyards in Europe. The winery has approximately two thousand meters of wine cellar caves and an average of thirty different varieties of wine and is a regular participant in the annual vendimia "first harvesting" festivals of its region. Eguren Ugarte has won several awards for its hotel accommodations and wine tours, and recently entered into a partnership deal with Delta Air Lines to supply wine in-flight. Eguren Ugarte is also a sponsor of the Santa Catalina Film Festival in Southern California and frequently supports other various independent art galleries and entertainment events internationally.

The sixth generation of winemakers located next to Páganos (Laguardia), this family winery has managed to maintain the traditions of winemaking, as well as the incorporation of all the latest growing and wine-making techniques, resulting in exceptional wines that have won major national and international awards. The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with a great Atlantic influence. Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural protection barrier for cold winds from the north. The vines are planted in clay-lime soils located at an altitude between 400 and 700 meters above sea level.

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
