Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Colomé Amalaya is FRUITY to integrated, medium bodied wine with nice aromas of red currant, caramel and coffee. It has refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a tangy, medium to long finish. It can be drunk now, but would benefit from aging for few years (2014-2018) if and only if it wasn’t for the FAKE cork enclosure used, completely eliminating the wine's aging potential!!!! My impression: NICE, 89 pts and a recommended buy especially at this price as it was originally sold for $18.95 – nearly $3 more. Tasted Aug/11.
