Previous Vintage (2014): 91 Points Vinous Media September 2015 "Light gold. Vibrant aromas of fresh orchard fruits, tangerine, smoky lees and jasmine, with a strong mineral overlay. Suave, silky and expansive, offering sappy citrus fruit and poached pear flavors complemented by honeysuckle and chamomile. Finishes seamless and very long, with lingering floral and mineral qualities. Ninety percent of this wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, the rest fermented and aged in used French oak barrels." - Josh Raynolds

Previous Vintage Review: (2012) 90 Points - International Wine Cellar, October 2013 "(aged for three months in two- and three-year-old barrels): Deep ruby. Assertive cherry and raspberry aromas, with an earthy mineral nuance coming up with air. Velvety in texture and appealingly sweet, offering lively red fruit and floral flavors with a touch of bitter chocolate. Closes with impressive clarity and energy, leaving juicy raspberry and floral pastille notes behind. The bang for the buck here is ridiculous." - Josh Raynolds

Variety: 100% Mencia
Aging: 12 months in French Oak barrels
 
Tasting Note: 91 Points WA Issue # 188 April 2010;
“Purple-colored, it delivers an alluring bouquet of cedar, Asian spices, rose petal, black cherry, and black raspberry. This leads to a velvety textured, sweetly fruited, intense wine with excellent volume and length. This impeccably balanced wine is likely to evolve for 1-2 years and will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020.”

Luzon 2013 Petit Verdot Jumilla Spanish Red Wine
89 Points - Vinous, September 2014
"(aged for four months in French and American oak): Inky ruby. Blackberry, blueberry, licorice and cracked pepper on the nose. Juicy, gently sweet and focused, offering good depth to its dark berry and bitter cherry flavors, with a hint of licorice coming up with air. Chewy and structured but not at all hard. The cherry notes repeats on the finish, which is firmed by dusty, slow-building tannins." -Josh Raynolds

Bodegas Obalo Altino 2008 Rioja Spanish Red Wine 750mL
100% Tempranillo, aged 10 months in new French Oak barrels
 
Tasting Note: 90 Points Wine Advocate Issue # 188 April 2010:
"A glass coating opaque purple color, it exhibits an aromatic array of toast, Asian spices, violets, incense, and blackberry. Smooth textured, sweetly-fruited and intense, it has enough structure for 1 years of additional cellaring but can be enjoyed now through 2018." 
 
Rated 90 points from Vinous Media; November 2010:
"(100% tempranillo) Opaque ruby. A highly perfumed, exotic nose evokes black raspberry, Asian spices, cola and rose, with a hint of vanilla. Smells like a high-end Napa red wine. Broad, sappy red and dark berry flavors are underscored by tangy minerality and become spicier with air. Finishes with good grip and no excess sweetness, leaving spice and floral notes. This went through malo and was raised in 100% new French oak." -- Josh Raynolds
