93 Pts. Robert Parker

92 Pts. Stephen Tanzer

90 Pts. Guía Peñin

Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Tasting NotesDark cherry red colour with a violet rim; very high layer. Rich, intense bouquet that is complex, yet balanced and elegant. It has a strong raspberry and blackberry character, softly spiced, with nice toasty hints coming from French oak. In the mouth it is powerful and meaty, yet silky. It is very tasty, with a firm tannic structure and a very long and fruity finish. A wine to keep as it will evolve in the bottle, yielding new sensations in nose and mouth. Pair with cheese and meat and generally any intense, powerful, flavoursome meals.

These wines are released in a limited series of 42,000 bottles per Artist and they are all complex wines to enjoy and to be paired with complex and subtle meals.
