Natalie's Score: 91/100

A rich and deeply layered red with gorgeous notes of black plum, blackberry and mocha. Some dark pepper and spices with a coffee-infused finish. Part of the Vintages Essentials Collection. Superb!

Cabernet Sauvignon/Gran Coronas food pairings: The perfect accompaniment to starters (cured meats, vegetable rice dishes and paellas), as well as the finest meat and games recipes, without forgetting cheeses. Serve at 17ÂșC. Properly cellared it will improve over the next 10 years..

Reviews and Ratings

Travis Oke rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep dark colour, prominent tobacco nose, delicious fruits with aged (softened) tannins - but not too soft. Upgraded from 89 to 91 after it cellared for another year and then opened up beautifully after decanting.
Great price for a big Spanish wine
Colleen rated this wine as 90/100
Emily Notman reviewed this wine as follows:

Same vineyard as esmarelda
Balanced aroma of spices (black pepper) and jam (cherries), complemented by notes of oak ageing (toasted bread, toffee). Broad and complex palate with a structure of silky tannins prolonged towards nuances of jam and coffee.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
