Savoury, meaty and full-bodied with a pleasantly bitter and refreshing finish. Black fruit and tarry depths. Great wine for big meat dishes and barbecue.

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

The 2008 Alvaro Castro is a light to medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with intense aromas of ripe red currant, blackberry and oak. Though on the acidic side, it has a good structure with refined tannins (decant for 30-60 min) and a medium to long, fruit filled finish. Drink now and for the next 2-4 years. It has typical regional character, which in this case translates into food friendly wine. My impression: NICE, 88-89 pts. Tasted July/12.
