Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "The just-bottled red 2018 Bozeto de Exopto is a superb young and fruit-driven blend of 50% Tempranillo and 40% Garnacha with a 10% pinch of Graciano to add freshness. The destemmed but uncrushed grapes fermented in stainless steel, concrete and oak containers with indigenous yeasts and matured for six months, the Garnacha in concrete, the Tempranillo in oak vats and a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano in well-seasoned barriques. 2018 was clearly a cool, Atlantic vintage (as opposed to Mediterranean vintages), and the grapes ripened slowly; some of the grapes (the Garnacha) were harvested later than ever. This juicy and fruit-driven young red is aromatic and more fluid, fresher and approachable. The palate is fresh and light, a wine to enjoy without moderation! 75,000 bottles produced make this 75% of the production of the winery.Drink Date: 2019 - 2022." Jun 2019

James Suckling:  "An early-drinking style of Rioja with loads of energetic primary fruit, ranging from citrus to raspberries to fresh herbs. Bright, soft and fruity on the finish. Drink now." July 2019

Winery:  "Deep red with a bright rim. Spicy cherry and black raspberry on the nose, with brisk mineral and floral overtones. Juicy and focused, offering sweet raspberry and blackberry flavors and snappy acidity. Impresses with precision rather than power, and finishes with juicy berry flavors and good persistence.

Food Pairing: Roast turkey, cured cheeses, orange sauces, grilled meats, fondues, paella, Italian and spicy food."
