rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Fortius Crianza, composed of undisclosed amounts of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in American Oak for 12 months; has appealing aromas of lees, red currant and pomegranate. It is medium bodied, fruity to integrated; is a bit on the acidic side, has subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. Drink with food; good now to 2015. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87-88 pts. Tasted Jan/13.

This wine is made with Tempranillo rounded out by Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet in the glass with alluring plum, cherry, cassis and smoky oak aromas. The palate reflects the nose, with good balance of fruit, oak and supple tannins. Long, structured finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2012
