Vinous 90 points - (62% grenache, 23% shiraz and 15% mataro): Bright violet color. Aromas of raspberry preserves, fresh flowers, licorice and white pepper show very good energy and focus. Juicy, focused and lively on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry flavors underscored by a spicy element. Shows a sweet floral pastille quality on the finish, along with silky, even tannins.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Smooth, rich and expressive, offering chocolate undertones to the cherry and guava flavors, lingering easily against polished tannins. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2019.—H.S. (Apr 23 2014)
