96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
"This rich, powerful red boasts a deep purple color as well as a decadent bouquet of red and black currants, blackberries, Asian spice, cedarwood, vanilla, and candied violet nuances. It's rich and powerful, yet also balanced and elegant. Showing more structure with time in the glass, this full-bodied Rioja will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 30 years or more. It's a beautiful wine." -JD, 10/21/20

93 Points - Vinous
"Deep violet. An expressive bouquet displays aromas of fresh red and dark berries, pipe tobacco and peppery spices, with vanilla and floral nuances emerging quickly. Smoke- and spice-tinged black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors convey appealing sweetness, and a spicy flourish adds lift and back-end cut. Soft, even tannins shape the finish, which shows fine clarity and repeating spiciness." -JR, Apr/2021
