WA 91+ WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The 2008 Reserva is classical in all senses, starting with the blend of 90% Tempranillo and 5% each of Mazuelo and Graciano, followed by its color, aroma and palate. It's bright cherry-colored, with aromas of red fruits intermixed with notes of leather, truffles and smoked meat, and a juicy, supple palate with good acidity and good length. This is a great Reserva and very good value. Drink now-2019."
According to Wine Spectator - "The smoke and mineral notes frame a core of black cherry and licorice in this sleek red. Not muscular, but racy and pure, showing balance and freshness in a savory style. Drink now through 2018."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Smoky, roasted top aromas cover scents of dried cheese, leather, latex and red fruits. This feels good and flush, with crisp acidity driving flavors of tomato, red plum, herbs and spice. A long, lightly herbal finish is a good ending. Drink now."
