Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fantastic find, this is an accessibly priced, full bodied, old world Rioja, great concentration, well balanced, inky, chewy mouthfeel, huge tannins, still integrating, with ripe red and black fruit, aged leather, baking spices. Pairs well with roasted red meats. Tasted 2014 vintage in May 2019. 90 points #goodvalue
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Sumptuous stewed black plums, dark bitter chocolate and spice notes. Developing chewy tannins, balanced acidity, long lingering black fruit flavours... and the price is right! Enjoy slow smoked bbq ribs. Tasted May 2019 by @sommsosa
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of blackberry, smoke, leather, vanilla and a hint of warm spice. Full bodied with firm but smooth tannins, and a nice blend of fruit and smoke on the palate. Nice acidity and overall balance. Pair with grilled meats or hearty stews.
Baron de Ley Reserva 2014 is spicy, full-bodied Rioja red with ripe red berries, blackberry, tanned leather and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Nice acidity and overall balance. Pair with grilled meats or hearty stews. Enjoy now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
