Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

100% Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero from vines that are on average 70 years old. This is a serious example for the price and will certainly age well. Inky in colour with a refined lead pencil savoury nose with hints of leather. The palate is blackberry and sour plum with a lean, slightly nervous finish. Quite inviting. Try with a char grilled bell pepper and lamb burger. @wrightwineblog
From the Ribera Del Duero wine region, Linajes 2014 Crianza is produced from 70 year-old vines and aged in French and American oak for 14 months. Look for blackberry, plummy, chocolate and spicy flavours on the plate. Tannins are firm. Enjoy now and for the next four years - Community Wine Reviews
