Very fresh and lively on the nose with immediate notes of blueberry pie, violet pastille, light sage and eucalyptus. This smells rather sophisticated with a gentle perfume-like note of vetiver, vanilla flowers and toasty spices. On entry, this shows flashes of gamy, campfire flavors that are quickly subsumed by clear, earthy wild raspberry fruit flavors and nuanced notes of dried herbs, a hint of green anise seed and dry, toasty oak notes. The tannins here are superbly managed and firm yet discreet. Acidity lends a juicy edge to the increasing, distinct wild berry fruit. The finish is fairly long with a nice herbal seed note punctuating the slightly candied boysenberry fruit. There's a lot of fruit here but it's not as fruity as it sounds, with lovely grace notes of leather and earth grounding the palate. Rather sophisticated on the palate as well. 91pts

Smooth, balanced, delightful, with fruit surrounded by gripping tannins, a right level of acid, and finish of mineral-metal and fruit. Grown in limestone soils.

Fresh vanilla and licorice aroma - very barrel driven, with some moderate notes of eucalyptus. The body approaches with well rounded and sumptuous plum and black fruit. The finish is very smooth.

Typical tempranillo nose, fruit-forward with a hint of smoke, vanilla, and leather. Well-structured palate, black cherries. Medium tannins on the finish. This is a wonderful "sipper" and would serve as a great introduction for someone who has never tried tempranillo. Paired nicely with seasoned flank steak. Emilio Moro has another hit. 88 points.

Offene Nase, reife, schwarze Beeren, Oliven, Lederaromen sowie gut integrierte Holznoten. Am Gaumen herrlich mundfüllend, dicht und mit einer feinen Tanninstruktur. Ein genialer Klassiker und ein perfekter Speisebegleiter.
