2018 Proelio Puerto Rubio Rioja Tempranillo - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The single-vineyard Tempranillo 2018 Puerto Rubio was planted over 60 years ago. It has 14.5% alcohol and was generously oaked, which gives it a creamy character with abundant sweet spices. It’s modern and ripe, with a luxurious texture and a dry, slightly astringent finish. It might need more time to absorb the oak. 4,180 bottles and 330 magnums were filled in March 2021."

2018 Proelio Puerto Rubio Rioja Tempranillo - 95 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plain"Dark plums, wild berries, dried herbs and warm earth with sweet spices and discreet vanilla creaminess interwoven to the nose. A medium-to full-bodied tempranillo with chalky, calculated tannins and vivid acidity. Lively, with a bright core of fruit on the center-palate and a flavorful, spicy finish. Naturally concentrated, but extremely drinkable, too. Long and bright. Drink or hold."
