|92||Vinous Media||Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Mineral-accented black raspberry and cherry-vanilla aromas are complemented by mocha, pot-pourri and star anise notes. Gently sweet and seamless in texture, offering red and dark berry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen slowly as the wine opens up. Sappy and energetic in style, showing strong thrust and harmonious tannins on the long, floral-dominated finish. (Fermented in concrete tanks and aged for a year in used, 400-liter French oak barrels.)

|90||International Wine Review||This 100% single vineyard Tempranillo displays an opaque robe with dark cherry chocolate and toasted oak aromas. It is lush and full on the palate with dark fruit and a slightly smoky note. Aged 12 months in 400L French oak barrels, it offers sweet dark fruit, round tannins and a dry finish.
"Spanish Wines of Value and Quality" - June 20, 2019
|90||International Wine Report||This smoky and savory Tempranillo takes on a nice combination of red and dark fruits on the palate. With tension building in the glass, the silky mouthfeel really drives this excellent bottling. Give this a lengthy decant if enjoying in its youth.
|90||JamesSuckling.com||Some smoke and caramel, as well as ripe blackberry and plum. A big, dry red with slightly rustic tannins, but plenty of personality. Drink now or hold.
|90||Wine Enthusiast||Aromas of purple fig, dark chocolate and pipe tobacco prep the palate for flavors of pomegranate, cherry, chocolate-cov¬ered espresso bean, dried Mediterranean herbs and orange zest. Durable tannins hang on into a lasting finish.
