Reviews

  • "95-97 points. The 2012 Tempranillo Impulsivo (aged in 70% new French-oak puncheons) showed beautifully with classic, savory notes of spice-box, cedar, dried flowers and black cherry fruit as well as full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. While there is a lot of tannin here, it’s sweet and high quality, and is perfectly integrated into the wine. Give it 3-4 years on release and enjoy over the following 10-15 years." (Wine Advocate)
