Reviews and Ratings

Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very perfumated and spicy nose. In addition notes of tofee candy, earth and ink. Also nuances of gunpowder and madasgar vanilla. In the mouth, full body and very mineral. Already showing majestic tertiary development such as nuts, cofee bean with animal notes. Drink now or give it maximum another 10 years
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An aged Rioja that was casked for six years in American oak. Medium-garnet, this medium-bodied red is 70% Tempranillo, 20% Grancho, and the rest of indigenous grapes. Herbal and oak aromas. Very smooth, with balanced tannins and acidity. Pair with lamb and red meat.

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.
