Ratings & Reviews

94 Points & #26 Top 100 of 2018 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rich and focused, this red delivers ripe fruit flavors of currant and blackberry that mingle with espresso, mineral and licorice notes. The firm tannins are well-integrated and crisp acidity keeps this focused. Concentrated and harmonious. Drink now through 2030. 2,500 cases made." – TM (Sep 30, 2018)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Impressive aromas of dark spice and pepper with graphite and ripe dark berries. This has a very plush and succulent palate with rich dark plums, dark chocolate and berries. Fresh, concentrated and powerful Ribera. Drink or hold." - (August 2, 2018)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The eponymous red 2015 Valderiz has notes of flowers, berries and spices, with contained ripeness and a juicy, full mouthfeel. There are abundant tannins that might require some more time in bottle and/or powerful food. 42,000 bottles." - Luis Gutiérrez (31st Aug 2018)
