2008 Amaren Rioja Angeles de Amaren - 90 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 90 pts(85% tempranillo and 15% graciano; aged in a 50/50 mix of French and American oak, all of it new): Saturated ruby. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate and vanilla. Sweet dark berry flavors and notes of candied licorice and cola coat the palate, with juicy acidity adding support. The cola and blueberry notes carry through onto the long, sappy finish, which is framed by velvety tannins."

2010 Amaren Rioja Angeles de Amaren - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Bright violet color. A heady, complex bouquet displays scents of ripe dark berries, Indian spices and pipe tobacco, with a vanilla quality building in the glass. Blueberry and bitter cherry flavors are impressively concentrated but lively, picking up a smoky character with aeration. Closes very long and smooth, with gentle tannins coming in late to add shape and grip. This supple, appealing sweet and seamless wine is balanced to age but is showing awfully well right now.- Josh Raynolds"

2011 Amaren Rioja Angeles de Amaren - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Vivid purple. Cherry, cassis, vanilla and a hint of woodsmoke on the pungent nose. Broad, fleshy and sweet on the palate, offering pliant, oak-spiced black and blue fruit flavors and a strong dose of vanilla. Shows good energy for its richness and finishes plush and long, with supple tannins making a late appearance. There is a lot of rich fruit here but the oak does give me pause. - Josh Raynolds"

2012 Amaren Rioja Angeles de Amaren - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The generously oaked 2012 Ángeles de Amaren is a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano with malolactic and 16 months of aging in new French and American oak barrels. There are plenty of spices and smoke, toasted aromas and balsamic notes. The palate is sleek and polished, with some dusty tannins and plenty of oak-related flavors. This is still quite oaky after five years, and I guess it will always remain oaky and is therefore not for all palates. 45,000 bottles produced."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #235, February 2018), 90 pts
