Wine Spectator 88 points - This crisp red shows maturing flavors of dried cherry, underbrush and cedar, with light tannins and orange peel acidity. A bit rustic, but well-integrated and savory. Drink now through 2016. 3,100 cases made.-TM

Vinous 91 points - (63% garnacha, 20% carinena, 11% cabernet sauvignon and 6% merlot; aged for 20 months in French oak): Deep ruby. Lively aromas of fresh red berries, potpourri, vanilla and pipe tobacco, with a hint of incense gaining strength with air. Fresh and lively on the palate, offering intense raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a zesty blood orange note. Juicy, appealingly sweet and seamless, boasting very good energy and thrust to its smooth, gently tannic finish.
