"Plenty of cherry, smoky oak and bark on the nose, following through to a full body with round, chewy tannins that are laden with some vanilla-bean highlights. Creamy and nicely textured. Drink or hold."
"Dark, glistening ruby. Powerful, oak-spiced cherry and dark berries on the highly perfumed nose, along with hints of candied rose, vanilla and licorice. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense blackberry, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors that become livelier as the wine opens up. At once rich and lively, showing excellent clarity, solid dark fruit thrust and polished tannins on the persistent finish. - Josh Raynolds"

"Aromas of blueberries, cola, coconut, dried herbs and sandalwood. Full-bodied with polished tannins. Suave and creamy with a woody character. Chewy finish. 96% tempranillo and 4% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold."
"A creamy, medium- to full-bodied red, with cedar, graphite and candied violet notes that are fragrant on the nose, with accents of ripe red cherry, boysenberry coulis, licorice snap and toast. Lightly chewy finish, with subtle smoke and spice. Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. - Alison Napjus"
"An energetic wine with a charming nose of spice, black fruits and black pepper. On the palate, it is ripe and concentrated, with Cabernet-led leafy blackcurrant flavours, underpinned by fresh acidity and supported by mineral, fine-grained, very elegant tannins. Classy and characterful with a really long, immensely impressive, finish."

"This delicious reserva is garnet-ruby in the glass, with a violet-colored rim. It has enticing aromas of ripe cherry, red plum and saddle leather. In the mouth, there are flavors of ripe red and black fruits, dried sage and thyme, pencil lead and cedar shavings. The tannins are velvety, the mouthfeel is voluptuous, and the finish goes on for days. - Mike DeSimone"
