94+ Points, Zachys Buying Team: "This is what we love about the Rioja from CVNE, there is a greater focus on a purity of fruit here than many of its neighboring old school traditionalists. The fruit is not masked by American oak, there is just enough to offer some complementing spice and pipe tobacco notes. The wine is incredibly approachable offering a spectrum of nuances; cherry, blackberry, tea, citrus, leather, with a touch of smoke. In many ways, this medium-bodied Rioja combines rustic elements of traditional old world Rioja with a fine Chambolle Musigny and Sangiovese based wine. It is old world Rioja that is light on its feet with great fruit purity and captures the classicism of the 2010 vintage."
94 Points, Wine Spectator: [Hot Wine] "This generous red shows a traditional character, with leafy, dried herb, tea and spice notes framing dried cherry, licorice and leather flavors. Firm tannins and balsamic acidity impart structure, and this shows plenty of depth, with a juicy, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025." 6/16
