2012 Amaren Rioja Crianza - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(aged for a year in a 50/50 mix of new American oak and used French oak barrels) Lurid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet of red fruit liqueur and potpourri carries suggestions of smoky minerals and oak spices. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a refreshing jolt of white pepper. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with supple, late-arriving tannins and a lingering red fruit liqueur note. This sexy wine is pretty delicious already, but it also has the stuffing to age. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Amaren Rioja Crianza - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Deep ruby. Oak-spiced cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors are complemented by a suggestion of mocha that gains strength as the wine opens up. Plush and seamless in style and showing no rough edges. Rich yet lively; a peppery note adds a spicy kick on the back half. Gentle tannins shape the impressively persistent finish, which leaves a hint of bitter chocolate behind. - Josh Raynolds"

2014 Amaren Rioja Crianza - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"Cropped from a somehow-challenging year, the 2014 Crianza, a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha, aged in new French and American oak barrels for 12 to 14 months. It's clean, aromatic, modern and quite showy. It's approachable and easy, with polished tannins and tasty flavors. 40,000 bottles produced."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #235, February 2018), 90 pts
