Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2008 Crianza is aged for 12 months in American and French oak. The nose is rather subdued despite rigorous coaxing: introverted black fruit with tertiary aromas that I would like to have seen more of. The palate is nicely balanced with slightly chewy, broad-shouldered tannins and a bold, grippy finish that is brutish at the moment. A few months bottle age will do this keenly priced Crianza no harm. Drink 2013-2017. ” (Aug 2012)
100% Tempranillo, having spent 12 months in French and American oak. Cherry red in color, it offers up an attractive nose of cedar, espresso, tobacco, and black cherry. This leads to a ripe, savory offering with plenty of spice and earth notes, a bit of structure, and 1-2 years of aging potential.
