Wine Enthusiast: 93 Points

A bouquet of blackberry and chocolate-covered orange peel drifts upward from this inky garnet-colored wine. It feels juicy on the palate at first, with flavors of black cherry and raspberry that are quickly joined by notes of clove, bittersweet chocolate and black olives. Durable tannins linger in a fruit-filled finish.

Wine & Spirits: 93 Points

An impressive wine from a challenging vintage, this has some power and intensity, even as it leans into dried-fruit flavors. The fruit is shaded by a dark woodland tone, like pine needles on the forest floor, highlighting the richness of its wood aging. Warm and austere, complex and satisfying, especially with grilled baby lamb.

Aged 15 months in French oak, this blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% other varieties offers cherry-skin tannins and note of cherry pith and red tea. Red fruit is perfused with radiant notes of cedar, violets, and clove. Clay, limestone, and iron-rich soils show in a stony core surrounded by bittersweet dark chocolate. A labor-intensive beauty, the wine spends 22 months in barrel, with decanting every four to six months, before aging a minimum of two additional years in bottle.
