|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This fruit forward Rioja vinified with half a century old wines is a true treasure. If value is what you are after, no need to look any further. Juicy blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, it’s bursting with aromas and flavours of ripe black cherries and blackberries. Medium in body, well integrated velvety tannins and balanced acidity. Plush, smooth and refined, closes in a lingering vanilla-tinged finish. Perfect pairing with tapas, grilled-meats, and smoky dishes. Tasted April 2017. Tania Thomas – www.runawaygrape.com
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Ruby red. Red and black berry fruit, leather, dried fig and a hint of baking spice. Old world wine with a touch of new world fruit forwardness. Enjoyable on its own. Pair with cassoulet. Tasted March 2017. 88 points.
|Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Deep purple. Medium body and spicy red fruit. A little short on the finish.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This Rioja pours with a delicate floral aroma and faint red fruit flavours (red plum and pomegranate) with lasting dried fig finish. Dominant notes include cedar, dark chocolate and figs. The Palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and moderate acidity. Flavours, body, tannins, acidity and finish lack balance. It would be interesting to see how this wine ages though. Enjoy with roasted game meats. Tasted March 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Medium-dark ruby. Plums, cherries, and spices aromas. Extra dry, medium body, short fruit, long acidity. Not much complexity here. Score 85. (S.Segard, reviewed March 26, 2017).
