Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Highly perfumed red fruit, potpourri, pipe tobacco, vanilla and coconut aromas, along with hints of star anise, cola and woodsmoke. Offers intense redcurrant, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily with air while maintaining vivacity. Finishes very long, smooth and appealingly sweet, showing excellent definition, sneaky tannins and a late jolt of smoky minerality. Drink 2021-2030." Feb 2019
Tim Atkin: Not everyone made a Gran Reserva in 2013, the latest vintage in the last 100 years, but this one was bolstered by grapes from Imperial, which wasn't produced. As a result, this blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo is balanced, serious and complex with impressive concentration. Drink 2019-2025."
James Suckling: "Aromas of plum and meat with a wet earth and hints of cedar. Medium body, very fine tannins. Juicy and delicious now. Not a big wine but ready and savory. Drink now." Aug 2018
Winery: "Ruby red in colour, the wine shows a youthful hint at the rim. The nose reveals interesting and complex aromas of ripe fruits in perfect balance with spices, toffee, roasted coffee and balsamic notes. The palate is soft, with silky tannins, good, fresh acidity and a long finish with a balsamic aftertaste. In terms of matching, this wine is a perfect companion for any dish of the Mediterranean diet. Recommended serving temperature is 64 degrees Fahrenheit."
