92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012

(96% tempranillo, 3% garnacha and 1% viura, aged for 16 months in one-year-old French oak barrels):  Glass-staining ruby.  Explosive, alluring aromas of black and blue fruits, incense, licorice and vanilla bean.   Lush and broad but juicy and focused as well, with suave candied dark berry flavors accented by sexy floral and Indian spice nuances. Finishes broad, spicy and impressively long, with echoing boysenberry and licorice notes.  In the context of flamboyant, new-wave Rioja this is an absolute steal.
