Wine Advocate

93 Points, Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Finca El Curvado comes from a vineyard planted on granite soils in the Chantada zone of Ribeira Sacra. The slopes are planted with mixed varieties, mostly Mencía with some Merenzao (aka Trousseau), Brancellao and even Godello. It fermented with full clusters in oak vats and aged in 500-liter oak barrels. The nose screams Ribeira Sacra, with great freshness as this Miño zone is a lot cooler than other parts of Ribeira Sacra. It has a mineral profile and a serious palate, and perhaps it's subtler on the nose. 5,000 bottles." 2/19

Vinous Media

91 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Youthful violet color. Smoky, mineral-accented cherry and blackberry aromas show very good clarity and pick up suave floral and Asian spice nuances with air. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering well-delineated dark fruit and violet pastille flavors that become more lively on the back half. Quite primary and promising, showing excellent finishing clarity and zesty mineral cut." 3/19
