...The nose is very fresh, with notes of beef blood, iron, cherries in liqueur, some subtle leather and spices plus notes of autumn forest and truffles... Great value for money... eRobertParker.com

This has got some serious power and weight. Too much wrapped up tightly, maybe needs a decant or some more bottle time.

Stunning balance savory meaty notes, incense, rich red fruit, bright acidity, and velvety tannins. More complete and multidimensional than the 2005. Very compelling wine at this price point.

Thoroughly enjoyed sipping the new vintage. A bit young & pent-up but already showing lovely, soft tannins.

80%Temp20%garnacha Bruised red strawberry & raspberry fruit, elegant, herbal notes, tea leaf with very light balsamic and decaying fruit character. In the mouth the wine excels with dried red fruit backed up by serious tannins and plenty of acidic lift to keep it fresh and exciting but more food friendly.

Slight funk. Sweet red fruits, liquorice, tobacco leaves with tons of dried rosemary. Silky smooth, beautiful.

Traditional Rioja like this always a reliable source of value even on an otherwise heinously expensive list. Ripe raspberry, cigar box, vanilla, spices. Tasty and smooth.

Classic Rioja! Nice strawberry and vanilla tones, with a very refined finish. Paired nicely with some excellent, spicy Peruvian food!
