Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A highly fragrant and beautiful example of Rioja, crafted from 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha Tinta, Graciano and Mazuelo, with hand-picked grapes. Fermented in stainless steel, then aged for 2 years in American and French oak and cellared in the bottle for another minimum 2 years before release.
I loved the blackberry, tart cherry, orange peel, vanilla and sweet tobacco notes that washed over my tongue with a very satiny mouthfeel. A perfect pairing for our garlicky rosemary-crusted lamb chops. Drinking well now. Definitely a wine to buy again!
Tasted Sept. 2022

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
