Part of the Cruzado Terroir Selections, Cerro Las Cuevas is crafted to bring a sense of place to the tasting experience. There are two vineyard sites in this bottling, Las Laderas with it's limestones soil topped by pebbles and Calitrancos with it's sandy soils. There's a defined concentration from having soils so poor and plenty of tannins in the profile from the limestone. A mineral verve courses through the red fruit and floral aromas. Impeccable balance and an extreme length to the finish, this wine is destined to age for years.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"This is a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano that was first produced in 2012, but because no 2016 was produced, I tasted the 2015 and 2017. The 2015 Cerro Las Cuevas was produced with grapes from the zone of Leza in open-top vats and matured in new oak barrels. This is the last vintage of the old profile, as the wine changed tremendously in 2017. This feels quite classical to be in the more modern range, as power and ripe Tempranillo dominate the blend, with generous oak that requires time in bottle to polish its tannins. 4,225 bottles produced." -Robert Parker
