Tasting notes, Robert Parker 90 points
The 2012 Reserva Unica spent 24 months in a combination of 60% French oak and 40% American oak. It was bottled without filtration and is an outstanding wine made from their vineyards that are over 30 years of age. Loads of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, vanilla, blackcurrants and black cherries jump from the glass and flavors of this full-bodied wine that has light tannin in the finish. This wine is still youthful and likely to improve over the next few years and last for a decade or more. The final blend was 98% Tempranillo and 2% Graciano.
An excellent and consistent producer of high-quality wines at realistic prices.
