Natalie's Score: 90/100
This lovely Spanish red wine is dusty and earthy with great structure, but it's not fruity in the least. Just a faint hint of dried blackberry on this Rioja red wine. Also dried herbs and an almost chalky finish in an attractive way. This full-bodied Spanish red wine is made from all Tempranillo. Finishes with espresso.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
The nose shows ripe red berries, subtle baking spices and leather, followed by a delicious flavourful palate with ripe red berries, herbal rosemary, vanilla, cloves and leather, Dry, harmonious with a long ripe red berry, herbal finish. Perfect for roast lamb. Here's a great wine for Easter dinner!
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This winner spent 24 months in oak and 12 months in bottle perfecting it's aroma and flavour profile. Plum, cherry, black raspberry, leather, cellar floor, and oak on the nose. The palate is juicy with a nice vanilla and caramel punch at the back end. Tannins are still youthful and medium + cleansing acidity. Long earthy finish. Lots of bang for your buck here! 100% Tempranillo. Enjoy with grilled meats, game, crudite plate.
Tasted: March 2015
|Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Stylistically, this seemed a cross between old-school and modern Riojas.
The nose had dark fruit, but it was decidedly secondary to bramble, leather, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, earthy tones and a slight charred wood smokiness.
On the palate, medium tannins and medium+ acid make for a decidedly food-friendly wine. The caramel/vanilla is front and centre, but not overpowering. Fruit includes cherry chutney, dark plum. Beautiful savoury finish.
Tasted November 2015.

Had for 11th anniversary with Glenn.
|This full-bodied Spanish red wine is made from all Tempranillo. Smoky and dusty with some black tarred fruit on the nose. Finishes with espresso. This wine was aged for 2 years in oak barrels and another year in the bottle before being released from the winery. Pair with roast lamb and smoked cheeses. - Community Wine Reviews|
