"The wine is deep cherry in color exhibiting complex, expressive aromas. Its minerality comes from the soil, the black fruit from the Tempranillo and the spice from a sometime in oak. The combination leads to a full body that finishes with great length.
"Inky violet. Potent aromas of cassis, cherry preserves, incense and potpourri, plus oak spice and mineral topnotes. Alluringly sweet and concentrated, with a spine of smoky minerality supporting intense flavors of dark berry liqueur, bitter chocolate, cola and candied lavender. Youthful, slow-building tannins add shape and grip to an impressively long, juicy finish that echoes the dark berry and floral notes. - Josh Raynolds."
"Like the rosé, I also found better balance and more integrated oak in the second vintage of the red, the 2019 Tinto, where they used larger barrels, 300- 400- and 600-liter, and the oak is neatly folded into the wine. Despite being a warmer year, the wine has less alcohol than the 2018. The wine remains creamy and with a luxurious palate of ripe fruit and spicy oak flavors but with more balance. The tannins are fine, and the mouthfeel is dry and serious, a return to the Ribera from the early 1990s. 27,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2021."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #255, June 2021), 93 pts
"A concentrated Ribera del Duero with a tight wrap of creamy tannins that suggest potential. I love the depth of the fruit here, complemented by fine-tuned spices. From organically grown grapes. Better after 2024."
