Description for Vintage 2020, Robert Parker Wine Advocate 97 Points: As with other vintages, there is a plus of complexity and depth in the 2020 La Condenada, which mentions the Paraje Camino del Ciego from Baños de Ebro where the vineyard that names the wine is located, a 0.75-hectare plot . It's a little shy with faint floral aromas and a note reminiscent of cereals, undeveloped and needing to burn that baby fat with some more time in bottle. But the palate is phenomenal— textured and fine-grained with chalky tannins, fresh and vibrant, clean and precise with some acid berry flavors that make me salivate. This is going to develop nicely in bottle and for a long time.

Artuke is a family-run winery owned by the Miguel Blanco family and located in the town of Baños de Ebro. It maintains 17 hectares of vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa, from where it produces wines with a distinct personality. Inheriting the tradition passed down from his forebears, Roberto decided to build the present winery in 1985, setting it up with the technology and equipment required for keeping wine production going and enabling it to cope with growing demand. Today, it is his children Arturo and Kike who run the winery.
