Pedro Ballesteros MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

A bit overdone in the vineyard, with high alcohol and much concentration, but with a nice expression and great persistence.

Ben Henshaw

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Beautiful aromas of soft ripe cherry, vanilla cream, buttered toast, yum! Some grip and then smooth spice. Very , very good.

Annette Scarfe MW

Tasting: Under 20 Rioja

Attractive, juicy acidity with sweet and sour notes – soft tannins with complexity. Still youthful and attractive with juicy red currants and blueberry fruit.
