91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008

($19; 50% monastrell and 25% each of cabernet sauvignon and tempranillo) Glass-staining ruby. Cherry-cola and blackberry on the nose, with sexy vanillin oak and baking spice accents. Pliant dark berry flavors stain the palate , with firming dusty tannins absorbed by the fruit on the broad, sweet, long finish. I find the oak here (all new, one-third of it American) to be complementary to the lush fruit but imagine that those with old-school palates will disagree. (Fine Estates from Spain, Dedham, MA)

A Superb Value
07/08/2011
by Prager10727828
Opens up beautifully, with plenty of dense black fruit, a pleasing balance of glycerin and soft tannins, and a Bordeaux-like aspect no doubt imparted by the cabernet content. Port-like nuances, too, via the dense extraction and relatively high percentage of alcohol. A superb value.
