"95 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""My favorite wine is always the one produced from a single 0.9-hectare plot of centenary, ungrafted vineyards that are planted with ListÃ¡n Negro and some 2% ListÃ¡n Blanco (Palomino); the vines are situated at 480 to 520 meters' altitude and pruned in the traditional cordÃ³n trenzado style with a northwest orientation. They used 100% full clusters that were foot trodden in raw cement vats without temperature control and some 35 days of maceration, and as with all of their wines, with indigenous yeasts. The Ã©levage lasted 14 months and was in neutral 500-liter French oak barrels. The old vines are planted in the middle of the slope on finer soils and always give very balanced wines. The nose is superb, really complex with aromas of freshly cracked peppercorns, violets and lilies, wet stones and that impossible pumice that cries Tenerife. I see more balance in this vintage, with a medium-bodied palate that shows a velvety texture with ultra-fine tannins. This is subtle, elegant, a much more powerful wine than you might think at first sight. However, it has a mysterious and ethereal quality. Elegant, balanced, precise, fresh and complex. This is awesome! 2,650 bottles were filled in January 2016."" 6/16 #225"
