88 points "Bierzo er kanskje et av Spanias mest spennede vinområde. Her finner du den fantastiske og sjeldne Mencia druen. Dette er en typisk Mencia med flotte modne, men friske bæraromer (bjørnebær og skogsbær) og noe eik. Smaken er svært konsentrert og intens og strukturert med lang finish. Et skikkelig røverkjøp og noe helt annet en tradisjonell vaniljesnill spansk vin. Her kan du rote deg inn i Italia i en blindsmaking. "

90 points "The entry level 2005 Petalos del Bierzo sets the bar high. Purple-colored, it has attractive aromas of flowers, raspberries and chocolate. The fruit is ripe, sweet, and supple in the mouth offering excellent intensity as well as elegance. Drink it over the next 4-6 years. This estate was started in 1998 by Alvaro Palacios. It has steep hillside vineyards and 60- to 100-year-old vines planted in 100% Mencia, a varietal indigenous to Bierzo, a cool-climate D.O." Best 2007-2012
