A living legend of Rioja, which has survived three centuries, destined to break records for its surprising vivacity of intense cherry color which gives an amazing complexity. Its nose exhibits an aromatic intensity which seduces us with its red fruits, floral notes of truffles, incense and spicy touches. It caresses the palate with satin texture. A Gran Reserva that shows strength, elegant bouquet, fruity intensity and impeccable balance.
James Suckling - 98pts
The aromas of this show an amazing freshness of flowers and herbs such as lavender, rosemary, and violet. Then it goes to raspberry, candy and currants. Black licorice too. A truly great wine on the nose. Full-bodied, racy and linear. So polished. It's like a red ruby. 86% tempranillo and 14% mazuelo in the blend. For release in September 2015. Great length and future.
Decanter - 93pts
Appealing red fruits sweep across a sweet and succulent palate. Lively fruit and finely grained, grippy tannins. Great drinkability and superb balance.
Wine Spectator - 92pts
Lively and graceful, offering bright cherry, vanilla, clove and tobacco flavors that mingle harmoniously over well-integrated tannins, this red is not muscular but focused and expressive, balanced and long. 905 cases imported.
