james suckling hq logo plain"Biscuit-like aromas with grilled nuts and chocolate oak-influence, across ripe dark berries. The palate has a very succulent, sweet-fruit core with plenty of ripe mulberries and plums. Supple tannins. Drink or hold."

wa89"Cropped from a warm and dry year, the 2015 Finca Sobreño Crianza is a powerful red with aromas of raspberry juice and aromatic herbs with a spicy twist. It's medium bodied, with fine tannins and good freshness. A very accessible and easy to drink crianza. 500,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2014 Crianza Toro (100% Tempranillo) is a nicely concentrated, medium-bodied red that has loads to love in its dark fruits, leafy herbs, pepper, and damp earth-driven aromas and flavors. I love its texture, it’s nicely balanced, and it has outstanding length on the finish."

vinous logo"Opaque ruby. Heady cherry, dark berry, vanilla and violet pastille qualities on the oak-spiced nose. At once rich and lively; a firm spine of acidity provides lift to ripe cassis, blueberry and vanilla flavors. Closes with gentle tannic grip and good persistence, leaving dark fruit and licorice notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"

Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering broad cherry and cassis flavors and a hint of licorice. A suave, gently sweet and open-knit wine, with a spicy element emerging on the long, gently tannic finish."

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 90 Pts"Bright purple. Primary dark berry and licorice aromas are perked up by a strong note of cracked pepper. Zesty blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air and pick up floral and spicecake nuances. Closes sweet, focused and long, with very good energy and slowly building tannins. - JR"

Wine Advocate 90 Pts"The 2009 Finca Sobreno Crianza is a blend from vineyards older than 35 years, aged in American oak for nine months. It has a pretty bouquet of blueberry jam and raspberry that is well-defined. The palate is well-balanced, with a smooth, silky texture, crisp acidity and a citrus, fresh, primal finish. It is a little compact at the moment but should repay a couple of years in bottle. Drink 2014-2020."
