Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Great value! A medium+ bodied mature Crianza with notes of dark fruit, sweet baking spices, leather, tobacco leaf, and a lift of violets. On the palate there's a smooth toast and caramel characteristics with long Skor bar finish. Loved it! Has more ageing potential. This is a buy a case wine.
Pair with Paella, roasted lamb, grilled meats.
Tasted: April 2015
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Dark berries, big taste with all sorts going on. This is an aged wine that shows no sign of fatigue. Lively, youthful, and full of ageing potential. Wow! Stock up on this, enjoy now, and let some age for years to come. 91 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jane Staples rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An aromatic nose with spicy red berry, leather and herbal notes. The palate gives herbal notes, ripe cherries, vanilla, sweet tobacco and leather. Dry with a long dark berry finish. Great value.

Natalie's Review

Abad Dom Bueno Crianza 2006, Bierzo D.O., Spain: Lovely mature flavours of tanned leather, violets and cigar box. Not fruity. Love this lots more than "younger" Crianzas. Somewhat like mature Rioja without the markup. The Bierzo region of Spain has recently reinvested itself and emerged as a modern producer of a very traditional grape, Mencia. This wine finished with black, mocha and spice. Try it with light curry dishes. Drink: 2012-2017. 244699 13.60% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 90/100. March 7, 2016 Best Value Red Wine.

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.
