Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Reserva is pure Tempranillo fermented in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and 16 months in barrel, 65% American and the rest French. I had one bottled that seemed quite advanced, so I uncorked a second one, which felt more or less the same, as if the fruit was drying out. I'm not sure, but I'd drink it up just in case... 205,000 bottles produced.

Wine SpectatorChewy tannins shadow plum, leafy and loamy earth flavors in this sturdy red. Shows density, but remains a bit austere. Decant. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases imported.
