Winemaker's Notes: "Shiny ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices with smoky hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long afterstate that brings back floral and fruity memories."
92 Points The Wine Advocate - "100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, the 2011 Reserva is an outstanding value showing beautiful black and red currant fruits, high-quality, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and loamy soil undertones. Deep, medium to full-bodied, very pure, rich and concentrated, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 3-4 years."
90 Points Wine & Spirits - "Youthful and bright, this wine’s plump cherry fruit fills its austere structure, with plenty of oak tannins to hold it in place. Unusually fresh for the vintage, relatively light, raspy and firm, this offers a hint of sweetness in the fruit to make the structure more accommodating. Decant it for meaty tapas."
