Vera Czerny rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

In the Moncayo mountains, just below Rioja, in elevation among 1,200-2,000ft above the sea level - somebody wisely planted Garnacha.

Some of the vineyards are over 100 years old. The rough terroire, poor nutrition soils and low yields - that's always a promising combination for exceptional wines.

Veraton, from the town of Vera de Moncayo, was sourced from vines with low yields. TLC farming brings the vine to it's maximum concentration and potential. Hand selected, only the perfect mature bunches are harvested, passing the vineyard several times.

Dark ruby color, rich aroma of dark fruits, ripe plums and dark berries, with a hint of cinnamon and cloves. On the palate you taste rich fruity wine, with notes of wild raspberries, blackberries and spicy oak.

Beautifully balanced, impressive and complex, with velvety tannins. One of the best Grenache expressions out there in this price range.
