91 points "A single vineyard 100% Grenache from 80-year old vines planted in pure chalk at an elevation of 750 meters, this estate is the creation of Juan-Carlos Lopez de la Cal, who learned his craft at Artadi. It is a fabulously concentrated, complex, medium-bodied Spanish red that tastes like a grand cru from the Cote de Nuits. The combination of limestone soil and Grenache grown at a high elevation appears to have given the wine a complex, elegant, raspberry, black cherry, and floral-scented nose with medium body, great fruit, tremendously vivid flavors, and amazing precision as well as finesse. This stunningly singular wine must be tasted to be believed. Remarkably airy and light for its intense flavors, it will provide immense pleasure over the next 5-6 years." "Bright ruby-red. Aromas of baked raspberry, kirsch, tar and roasted garrigue Very rich and silky, but with excellent acid cut giving shape to the black cherry flavor. Boasts a high-altitude freshness despite its slightly baked quality. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins, a mineral nuance and very good length. Very distinctive wine, slightly Chateauneuf-like but with more obvious acidity." -91 Points, Stephen Tanzer, IWC" Best 2004-2012
