92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2007

($40; 86% tempranillo, 10% cabernet sauvignon and 4% merlot) Deep ruby. Spicy cherry-cola, mint and exotic floral aromas display striking clarity. Deeply flavored but silky in texture, with precise red berry and cherry flavors, medium body and good support from fine-grained tannins. Finishes bright and minerally, with outstanding lingering sweetness.

A friend had me over for dinner and poured me a glass of this wine. It has deep red berry and cherry flavors that start surprisingly sweet. Finishes clean with medium tannins.

Clearly modern in style. Great fruit and clarity of flavor. Not for the rioja/ribera del duero traditionalist perhaps, but a really nice wine with good QPR that still manages to reflect its Spanish roots.
