December 25, 2018 - A very enjoyable drink.
Unplanned wine for Xmas day that really drank well. Lovely freshness of fruit with good acidity. Complemented Christmas dinner pretty well as it wasn’t too heavy. Nice to have seen this evolve so well and still has life for a good few years yet.
July 26, 2017 - Two bottles today that had rather flat taste and minimal aroma. Are they both early corked?
December 14, 2016 - After having 3 Rioja's it was cool to move to Ribera del Duero. More olive notes and muddy earth, red fruits, cured wood and a good dose of tea. Not quite the acids of the Rioja's but very balanced.
September 13, 2016 - Nice depth of flavour, lots of ripe fruit, quite powerful on the palate but finish seemed a little short and thin unfortunately, otherwise would have scored better
August 20, 2016 - One of my favorites, always delivers. Strong nose with vanilla, good concentration, excellent balance and long finish.
July 14, 2016 - Un bon Rioja mature, corsé, boisé et épicé sur les fruits noirs. C'est fondu et le tout est appuyé par une bonne acidité. L'alcool ressort légèrement (-1). Bien bon tout de même.
February 25, 2016 - Very nice. Fruit is bold and deep with a creamy vanilla background
Drinking really well now, I like this stage of development but think it be good for medium term cellaring
January 16, 2016 - La robe est violacé intense. Le nez dégage des notes de boite à cigares, d'épices et de prune. La bouche est harmonieuse et moyennement corsé, elle est concentré mais sans trop perdre de fraicheur. L'élevage est bien maitrisé et ne masque pas ce beau fruit parfaitement mûrie et bourré de soleil! Les tanins sont en parti fondu. Prêt à boire!
November 13, 2015 - Typical Ribera. Good fruit and mild tannins. Little sediment. This is my fifth bottle from a case and have been consistent. No sign of aging.
October 24, 2015 - This wine is not aging well in my opinion. Opened to a bis of raisin and alcohol and had little fruit on the pallet. It got better with food but still I was a tad disappointed.
