92 James Suckling: Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, dried flowers, bay leaves, iodine and cigar box. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Spicy and vibrant with a velvety texture and a flavorful, polished finish.

91 Wine Spectator: Harmonious and juicy, laced with delicate cherry and plum fruit flavors. Bright but also round, showing elements of spice and cedar that creep in as this plays out on the succulent finish. Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2030.

 

Winemaker Notes

Bright, ripe cherry red. Intense and complex in aromas. Aromas of ripe red fruit, enveloped in white flowers, almond blossom and broom. Touches of cinnamon and resinous notes. Velvety on the attack, smooth and delicate. It is elegant, balanced and harmonious on the palate. A long finish, leaving a pleasant aftertaste that encourages you to take another sip.
