    March 4, 2022 - Completely agree w/Whits review. The wild berry...and bit of spice. Wow. Love this wine especially for the price. I drink a lot of red bierzo, need to drink more reds from Ribeira Sacra

    October 29, 2021 - Wild berry and spice on the nose, tender with medium to high acid, dark and soulful, the palate shows umami character with hints of cherry, chocolate, saline and blackberry, long finish, deep and intriguing, good with pasta with pork tomato sauce, a swell value indeed

    September 3, 2021 - Dark fruit and spicy, peppery aromas on the nose. Medium bodied, smooth and supple, quite elegant, delivering subtle ripe dark fruit with discreet peppery notes, gentle tannic grip and firm acidity. Overall very elegant and poised. Had a glass at BasBas restaurant with the excellent food.
