Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Intense wine from Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz, located in Ribera Del Duero, Spain, the 12 Linajes Crianza 2014 shows succulent aromas of fig, raisin, black pepper, parmesan cheese, chocolate, cigar box and oak. Full-bodied, this 100% Tempranillo delivers a round mouthfeel with agreable tannins. The finish is well defined and dry, and the flavors expose delicious dried blackberry and blueberry, dried rose, earthy notes, tobacco and oak. Enjoy!

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