Cune Description

This wine is garnet in color with pink hints at the rim. On the nose, forest fruits stand out alongside licorice, these being well integrated with sweet spices, roasted coffee, nutmeg and scents of the forest. The palate is smooth and reveals youthful tannins and a long, fruity finish.

This is a wine which will match well with meat, fish, stews and cheeses.

Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha Tinta, Graciano and Mozuelo

James Suckling: 93 Points

A firm and chewy red with chocolate, walnut, and berry character. Medium body. Lots of spice. Some sweet tobacco. Flavorful finish. Firm and silky tannins. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator: 91 Points

This rich red delivers fruit-centered flavors in a muscular structure. Cola and loamy earth notes frame plum and currant fruit, backed by firm tannins and smoky acidity. This is assertive and a bit clumsy but shows depth and focus. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. Best from 2022 through 2032.

Wine Advocate: 90 Points

The current release of the first wine ever produced at CVNE is the 2016 Cune Reserva, a classical blend of Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo from Haro. 2016 was a cooler vintage that delivered wines with less alcohol and good freshness, and this textbook example fermented in 20,000-liter stainless steel vats and matured in French and American oak barrels for 24 months. It is a bit austere and a little lighter but very tasty and fresh, without the richness of the warmer year but still very gourmand and profound for the price. It finishes dry and with fine tannins. A Reserva for the table and the best Reserva since the 2010.

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

Red-berry aromas of cassis and plum are a touch stalky and rustic, with a whiff of horseradish. A fresh palate is racy and medium bodied, while this reserva tastes of plum, cassis, vanilla and oak spice. Adequate length and a solid feel define the finish.
