93 Points - "The 2006 Alonso del Yerro 'Maria' went through malolactic fermentation in new French oak and was aged sur lie for 18 months with batonnage. It is a bit more expressive aromatically with elements of toasty oak, mineral, espresso, leather, black cherry, and blackberry. It has a smooth texture, succulent flavors, ripe tannin, and a lenghty, fruit-filled finish. Give it another 3-5 years of cellaring and drink it through 2026."
