88 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Sep/Oct 2012
Deep ruby. Musky, smoky aromas of dried cherry and dark berries, with notes of cedar and cured meat adding complexity. Distinctly wild, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and suggestions of chewing tobacco and smoky herbs. Dusty tannins add grip to the finish, which leaves dark chocolate and peppery spice notes behind. Old school Rioja all the way.
