Raquel rated this wine as 96/100
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Crowd pleasure for any occasion, the Valdelacierva 2015 Crianza, made from 100% Tempranillo, shows aromas of sugarplum, fig, mustard seed, black pepper, parmesan cheese, dark chocolate and tobacco. Full body, refined tannins and well integrated acidity, with a dry dried and fruity finish perfect for any meal. Palate: sour cherry, dried blackberry, dried rose, pastrami, tobacco, dark chocolate and oak. Enjoy!
Valdelacierva Crianza 2015 produced from 100% Tempranillo from the Rioja wine region. Look for dark plum, ripe red berries, leather and cedar spice flavours creamy on the palate. Tannins are firm. Decant one hour prior to pouring with a roast of pork. Enjoy now and for the next six years. - Community Wine Reviews

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
