‘Enticing aromas of blackberries, leather and cedar with some dried flowers follow through to a medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, citrusy finish. Very traditional and real. Drink now.’ – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, 93/100

‘2013 was a very tough vintage when they had to discard up to 100,000 kilograms of grapes and production of most of the wines was lower; it's also the year when their father died, and they were very encouraged to make very good wines. The 2013 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza is the entry-level red from that year, the cooler of the shortlist of 2013, 2014 and 2015 I tasted next to each other. The wine is more austere even within the style they say is their wine for the by-the-glass market. It's classical and developed with a polished palate after three years in barrel. It overdelivers for the conditions of the year. 2022-2028’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 92+/100

Producer information López de Heredia is Spain's poster child for classic, traditional Rioja and is one of the wine world's great treasures. The wines of López de Heredia are oxidative, finely elegant and have a depth of umami flavour that make them so food-friendly. 'The wines are now the height of fashion… and ultimate expression of the region of La Rioja Alta', writes Decanter. Now in its fourth generation, López de Heredia have produced their wines in the same patient way since 1877. 'To capture the essence of Rioja one can’t change with every trend. For us, tradition and conviction are life-long attitudes.' – Maria López Heredia
