"These are custom cuvées made specifically for importer Fran Kysela. Palacio del Burgo is a large estate, even for Rioja, with over 494 acres of vines. All three of these inexpensive offerings are impressive and merit serious interest from thrifty consumers. The 2013 Tinto was bottled early to take advantage of its fruit. A blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Grenache and 5% Mazuelo, it was fermented and aged totally in concrete. A deep plum/purple color is accompanied by notes of blackberries and camphor as well as wonderfully pure, medium-bodied, savory, luscious fruit, sweet tannin and a heady, fleshy finish. It is meant to be drunk young as it sees no oak, so consume it over the next several years. - Robert Parker"
