Sierra Cantabria never really gets it wrong. Even in a rough, cool year like 2002, its Crianza is solid and stylish. The nose is common and good, with cherry, spice and leathery aromas. The palate is also solid, with tobacco notes intermixing with plum and berry flavors. Shows adequate power and precision, and it's true to the region's traditions.
