Wine Advocate

92+ Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted two vintages of their entry-level wine because the 2016 Pétalos del Bierzo was sold out and the 2017 has already been released. Depending on the vintage, they use more or less white grapes in the fermentation, and in 2016 it was around 6%. It has an elegant profile, clean, floral and spicy, with a soft palate and subtle acidity that gives it a kick and makes it longer. This is one of the best value wines in Spain, and 2016 is not an exception. Perhaps it won't be the longest-lived vintage, but it's drinking beautifully and gives a lot of pleasure. It's somehow reminiscent of 2013 or 2014, perhaps a tad warmer." 2/19

James Suckling

92 Points, James Suckling: "In spite of all the blackberry and violet aromas, this wine has great herbal freshness and enormous vitality on the sleek and positively dry palate, with a long and crisp mineral finish. About as food-flexible as any red wine gets." 8/18

Wine Spectator

92 Points, Wine Spectator (WS #35 wine of 2018): "This savory red offers notes of espresso, black olive and graphite framing a core of black cherry and licorice. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep this balanced. Harmonious and graceful. " 10/18
