    May 28, 2014 - Quite opulent at first with heavy woody notes. Opened and softened up with some air and came across with very nice spicy notes. On the heavy side and somewhat overpriced, but a very good and interesting to try this modern take on Rioja.

    March 16, 2014 - Well made temperanillo. Decanted for 2 houers. Ready to drink or keep a few years more. Dark colour. Still plenty of fruits and nicely balanced acid. Full body , long aftertaste and everything very well integrated. Fine structure and still plenty of tannins. Top quality... Thinking of Vega, Aalto, Sisseck ! Buy and enjoy. OT

    January 30, 2014 - Vin ample et gouteux, légère chauffe en finale...attendre encore un peu mais prometteur.
    Nez fragrant sur les épices, le boisé, des cerises avec un peu de chocolat noir et du cuir,
    En bouche, belle amplitude et bonne acidité pour soutenir le fruits rouges généreux.
    Les tannins sont fermes et la finale très longue.

    January 26, 2014 - OK wine but not a great wine. Typical Rioja with a modern touch. Not a bargain.

    October 29, 2013 - High alcohol fruit bomb whose time has passed. Lovers of classic rioja should skip this wine. Alcohol noticeable on the nose and in the drinking. Not going to get better.
