Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made from hand-picked grapes, this Tempranillo shows a red cherry nose with vanilla and leather notes. The palate shows lots of ripe cherry, herbal notes, cloves, vanilla, leather and slight tobacco. Dry and harmonious with a long dark cherry finish.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Yummy! Loads of spice and fruit. Very nice wine. Enjoy with rich dishes. 90 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The Chivite family has been related to the wine business since 1647. The 2009 vintage of this estate bottled Spanish red wine is made from Tempranillo grapes that were hand-picked from singular plots of Finca Granja de Legardeta. The Legardeta winery estate benefits from an Atlantic climate. this wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. Decant 2 hours. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
