Sue Courtney,, May 2018 (2012 Vintage)
"Fading black red garnet. Fragrant aromas of cherry jam with a touch of rosehip and sweet spices. Lifted in the medium-bodied palate with moderately firm tannins to start, juicy red fruits, a touch of vanilla creaminess, a rose petal muskiness and subtle anise spices finishing smooth with the tannins dissolving to leave behind a pleasing roundness and well-balanced sweetness and savouriness. Star buy."

91/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2018 (2012 Vintage)
"Mellow, smooth-textured red showing obvious bottle age and barrel maturation and American oak influence. Floral, violet, red berry, vanilla and coconut flavours. A moderately light but nonetheless impressive red offering value at this price."

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, January 2018 (2012 Vintage)
"A beautifully maturing red, the engaging bouquet shows dried cherry, charcuterie, nutmeg, cake spice and truffle notes. The palate is wonderfully flavoursome and soothing with sweet berry notes as well as rich savoury nuances, elegantly framed by silky tannins. At its best: now to 2019."

4 Stars & 17.0+/20 Raymond Chan, January 2018 (2012 Vintage)
"​Moderately deep, dark garnet-red colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is soft and elegantly concentrated with a core of sweet and savoury red berry fruit melded with a subtle layering of oak spice and cedar, along with nuances of game, dried herb and secondary detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has a deep heart with concentrated flavours of sweet and savoury red berry fruits entwined with cedary oak, game elements and dried herbs. The mouthfeel has good weight and presence, with soft, fine-grained, supple tannin extraction with gentle acidity. The flavours carry along a smooth-textured line leading to a lush, savoury finish with cedary oak. This is a lush, sweet and savoury red berry-fruited Rioja with spicy, cedary oak and secondary notes on a fine, supple palate. Match with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern lamb dishes over the next 4+ years. From Bodegas Castillo de Fuenmayor, a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 10% each Graciano and Garnacha, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 3 years in the cellar with 12 months in 50% French and 50% American oak."
