Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A good example of how much of a bargain pre cellared Spanish reds can be. Keep in mind they are often made to enjoyed upon release and not for further cellaring.
This one is lighter and more delicately fruited than previous vintages I have tasted.
Aromas of cedar, earth, sour cherry, old leather, fig compote, cranberry, cassis, and dried herb.
Flavours see replays of tobacco and tea leaf, cherry and pit, blackberry, toasty oak, more figs, resinous herbs, red plum, and cranberry.
Quite lithe and lip smacking for a wine with so much age behind it. Good value.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted March 23rd 2017. Light red on the rim dark red towards the middle, clear, bright.
The aroma did not jump out of the glass after being opened for an hour the aroma needed some swirling, red and dark fruit. So not much on the nose for me. The taste red fruit soft mouth feel nothing special but easy to drink. A nice finish but not long.
This was a marriage of Tempranillo and garnacha grapes in a 18 to 24 month relationship with oak barrels. Short on aging. I'm probably drinking it at the end of its life. Drink Now! I found it paired well with my crock pot beef ribs onions and side order of roast red potatoes with green beans. A good value table wine for a weekday dinner.
Cheers!

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.
