Wine Advocate 92 Points- It's not easy to follow a 2010, but the 2011 Via Cubillo Tinto Crianza improves with time in the glass, showing much better than expected. 2011 was a warmer year than the 2010, and the wine is a little riper but has great balance and very good harmony. It's a noteworthy red for the price asked. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2017.

Tasting note: Colour: Clear, bright ruby. Nose: Fresh and slight aroma to licorice with consistent texture and persistent aroma. Taste: Smooth, fresh and persistent.
Grape Varieties:Tempranillo (65%), Garnacho (25%), Mazuelo and Graciano, the rest, all from our own vineyards.
Ageing period in barrels:3 years, being racked twice per year and fined with fresh egg whites.
