95The Wine Advocate

The nose is full of flowers, blood orange, sweet spices, violet pastille and curry. It's very aromatic and perfumed, with the herbs that you find in the Remelluri mountains, rosemary especially. It is extremely attractive, with a nose that makes you go back to it over and over again...terribly balanced. The tannins are refined and there is a fine thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up.

95Vinous / IWC

A heady, expansive bouquet evokes fresh, mineral-accented red berries, cherry liqueur, vanilla and cedary oak, and a sexy floral nuance emerges with air. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering alluringly sweet, concentrated raspberry, cherry-vanilla, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that are given spine and focus by a core of juicy acidity. Rich yet energetic in style, displaying wonderful finishing clarity, fine-grained tannins and outstanding, floral-dominated persistence.

94Jeb Dunnuck

This medium to full-bodied, incredibly classic Rioja offers tons of dark, earth fruit, cedarwood, olive, and tobacco aromas and flavors. It has terrific concentration, beautiful mid-palate density, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Dark-red fruit and smells immediately much fresher... The tannins are much, much finer, papery layers, and the fruit tastes fresher and with more energy...much fresher on the finish.


Spain, Rioja

Rioja Demoninación de Origine Calificada is Spain’s most important wine region. Located in northern Spain, it comprises 135,000 vineyard acres and was the first official appellation in Spain, earning its official DO status in 1926. In 1991 it became Spain’s first DOCa, Spain’s most prestigious appellation category. The DOCa is divided into three subzones: La Rioja Alavesa in the northeast; La Rioja Alta in the southwest; and La Rioja Baja in the east. About 75 percent of Rioja wines are reds, with Tempranillo the predominant grape. Garnacha (Grenache), Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, a spicy, high-acidity red grape, are also allowed. White wines are made from Macabeo, Garnacha Blanca and Malvasia. Wines were made in this region well before the Romans arrived, though the Romans then the medieval monks refined vineyard management and wine production. In the 19th century French families migrated to Rioja after phylloxera wiped out their vineyards, and the French helped establish the tradition of wine blends, still part of Rioja winemaking. According to the rules for the appellation, a wine labelled a simple Rioja can spend less than a year in an oak aging barrel. A Criziana is aged for at least two years, one in oak. Rioja Reserva is aged at least three years, with at least one in oak. A Rioja Gran Reserva must be aged at least five years, with two years in oak.
