Natalie's Score: 92/100

Awesome! Savoury with leather, violets and hedonistic happiness. Lovely vibrancy yet it also has a wonderful maturity to it. Perfect to celebrate great moments in life, like opening this bottle. How can it be priced so low?

Food pairings: filet mignon.

Travis Oke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Had this wine as our starter with Paella made by my visiting brother in Spain. Bright tasting tempranillo with complex layers for this price point. Lengthy finish
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Black cherry, forest floor, fruit decay (strong on the nose off the bat), marshmallow root, nice minerality: iron moving to blueberry. Spicy wood perhaps (mesquite applewood?) 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

April 6, 2014: Deep ruby/garnet with a maturing nose of ripe red/blue fruit, oak spice, chocolate, earthy, dusty minerality and a white pepper/sulphite that dissipates after about 30 min. This wine is round and richly textured, good concentration, savoury along with dark cherry, plum/prune, raspberry and chocolate notes. Tannins are well integrated and balanced with fruit and acidity. This is medium full bodied with a long finish that has a bit of tartness to the acidity. This should have a broad appeal and work with many dishes. I'd suggest to drink now and over the next 2-3 years with roast chicken, herbed beef roast or sausage.
