RP93+Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Apr 2019
"There is a big jump in depth, complexity and nuance between the Monastrell and the 2017 Vino de Finca, which is a blend of Monastrell with almost 25% Garnacha. This comes from four plots that were selected from what was previously used for the entry-level Monastrell; they aim was to find a wine with more finesse and elegance but with the inherent power of the zone. This is only the third vintage for this cuvée, and it feels quite established and different from the rest of the range; it has less varietal character and is more about the place, getting closer to the single-vineyard bottlings where they do not search for fruit character. The idea here is to ferment at temperatures that are quite so low and to stabilize the wine in oak barrels for a long-ish time (12 months in 500-liter barrels and 5,000-liter oak foudres). They are wines of sun and limestone. This is a good reflection of it with a perfumed and floral note on the finish (elegance!) that is quite remarkable. 31,000 bottles produced in 2017. It was bottled in November 2018." (93+ pts.)
The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2020 This bold red features a thick, rich texture, with ripe, heady flavors of currant and blackberry preserves, backed by cocoa, espresso and loamy earth notes. Muscular tannins are well-integrated, with enough orange peel acidity to keep this lively. Harmonious, in a full-throttle style. Drink now through 2027. 10,000 cases made, 9,000 cases imported.VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021 Saturated ruby. Aromas of ripe cherry, boysenberry, licorice and pungent flowers, along with a hint of vanilla. Sappy, broad and well-concentrated, offering plush black and blue fruit flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Smoothly plays power off energy and finishes long and sappy, displaying sneaky tannins and an echoing vanilla note.
