Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
Super balanced Ribera for great price
We like the reviews from Gutiérrez who is reviewing for The Wine Advocate Spanish wines and this is one of the discoveries. Medium bodied, complex and great lengthy aftertaste. A real discovery for this price if you like The Ribera’s a bit less powerful and more complex. Best to wait a year to allow further development.
Super new style Ribera at great price
After tasting a few bottles of the 2015 and 2016 I can say this is really different than most Ribera’s. Very elegant, flavourful and good nose and aftertaste looking forward to next sip. It needs time in the bottle... although difficult... the 2015 now tastes even better than a year ago.
Frankly one of the best.. probably too young but an abundance of fruit and superb balance- will be a regular when in stock
Lots of pure fruit and smooth tannins. Very easy drinking wine but also quite a classy example. Would certainly revommend.
As good or maybe even slightly better as 2016. Complex & balanced, very good price/quality, you really need to try it.
