Cubillo is a good traditional Rioja, a bargain, I would say. Yet I do not share the excitement around this wine. It has a beautiful bouquet of sour cherry, vanilla, tobacco, fresh leather, and spices. Not a simple one. While it shines in the aroma, it lacks in the taste. Medium body, well-integrated tannin, but the deficient volume makes acidity not so pleasant. Maybe it’s just too young. So there is potential. Anyway, I am not excited, but this wine is something the market should provide more.

I can’t stop drinking this wine. In my opinion (and according to my taste preferences), Cubillo Crianza is among the best Rioja wines available on the UA market for this price. Old-school style, well-integrated oak, and a combination of secondary and tertiary aromas. It all makes this wine a pleasure to drink.
