94 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2013

(75% tempranillo, 15% mazuelo and 10% graciano; aged for 6 months in large wooden vats, then moved to new French oak barrels for another 18 months):  Bright purple.  Explosive aromas of dark berry preserves, cola, Indian spices and woodsmoke, with a sexy floral topnote.  Smooth, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors show impressive vivacity and focus for their power.  Sweet, spicy and extremely persistent on the finish, showing very smooth, harmonious tannins.
