In the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria surrounded by 130 hectares of vines, the Eguren Ugarte Winery is in Laguardia in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa. It has a restaurant with amazing views and is a great place to base yourself, in its delightful rooms, if you are touring Rioja.
With 15 months in American Oak.
The Ugarte, Rioja Crianza, Jeroboam comes in a wooden box. It is an intense cherry-red colour, with ruby notes in the rim. Clean and bright. Very expressive, intense, fruity (blackberries, cherries). Balanced aromas of toasted wood and vanilla in harmony with each other. Wide and creamy on the palate and packed with juicy fruit. Ripe tannins give a sensation of body and structure but which are perfectly combined, providing a sense of volume. A creamy long finish.
