92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2012
(54% tempranillo, 29% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot, 5% syrah, 2% petit verdot, 2% cabernet franc and 2% malbec, all aged in French oak for 18 months): Ruby-red. Intense aromas of dark berries and cherry compote are brightened by suave floral and spice nuances. Fleshy and broad, with very good depth to its black raspberry, floral pastille and cola flavors. A smoky note comes up with air and adds bite to the long, spicy, youthfully tannic finish. Give this wine a few years of rest.
