The 2012 Cune Gran Reserva, a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, matured in barrel for two years and was kept in bottle for three years before it was released. It had a lot of freshness, with notes of red fruit and an iron-like touch, reminiscent of beef blood and meat, austere and serious. The oak is pretty much in the background. The palate is sleek and polished, with fine tannins and a soft mouthfeel. Very good balance and drinkability. 50,000 bottles were produced in this excellent but low-yielding vintage.

A velvety texture carries lively flavors of cherry, berry, vanilla and spice, supported by orange peel acidity and light, firm tannins in this alluring red. Balanced, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made, 800 cases imported.
