Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This beauty was aged 26 months in French and American oak, and spent 3 years in bottle. Vinified from Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo varietals from Rioja Alavesa sub region. Well balanced. Earthy, leather, plum, with big acidity, integrating medium tannins. Tasted 1994 vintage in Feb 2018 at Vancouver International Wine Festival. 1994 is said to be one of the best vintages in Rioja history. 93 points.

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.
