Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011) - 88 pts

Wine Advocate #201 Jun 2012 - Robert Parker - The 2011 Monastrell Vinas Viejas (100% Monastrell ? or Mourvedre ? aged in stainless steel) comes from a vineyard planted at nearly 2,400-foot elevation with non-irrigated old bush/head pruned vines. More herbal and peppery than the less expensive Molino Loco, it is a well-made, deep, spicy, savory, earthy effort with more complexity and personality than its sibling. Consume this unreal value over the next 2-3 years. It reminds me of a well-made French Cotes du Rhone.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2014) - 90 pts

Jan 16 by Josh Raynolds - Deep ruby. Vibrant, sharply focused and complex on the nose, displaying fresh red berries, cherry pits, Asian spices and incense. The palate is juicy and taut with bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors and a sexy floral pastille nuance. Closes silky and gently sweet, with resonating floral and spice notes. This vibrant, insanely inexpensive wine was made entirely in stainless steel, with one-third whole clusters.
