International Wine Cellar"(100% Tempranillo, raised entirely in American oak): Vivid ruby. Ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth. Pliant and seamless in texture, with good heft and back-end energy. Finishes smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing shape and grip. Still on the young side but this wine drinks very well with an hour or so of decanting; it's an excellent value for Rioja."

Wine AdvocateA sensational value from Spain, this 100% Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa has a deep ruby color and a fragrant nose of new saddle leather, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and red and black cherries, followed by a seductive, lovely mouthfeel with no hard edges. It is medium-bodied, pure and best drunk over the next several years.

Wine SpectatorThis supple red delivers focused flavors of cherry and fresh herb, with licorice and smoky notes. The silky texture has some depth, and well-integrated acidity keeps this lively. Drink now through 2020. 15,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis light-bodied Rioja smells of cherry, plum and cotton candy. It's a bit thin on the palate but offers just enough body to be worthwhile. Mild plum and cherry flavors hollow out on the simple finish.
