Winery notes (2012 Vintage) 
"Proprietary vineyards located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja). Environmental integrated agriculture cultivation. Traditional winemaking, 100 % de-stemmed. Malolactic fermentation in oak. Aged 24 months in French oak Bordelaise barrels (60 %) and American oak (40%), 30 % new oak and 70 % maximum 3-wines barrels.

Bright ruby. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, cherry, licorice. Juicy in the mouth, with red fruit flavours mixed with toasty vanilla and underlying mineral notes. Penetrating acidity extends the long, spicy, floral-dominated finish."


90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, August 2016 (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 Reserva Unica spent 24 months in a combination of 60% French oak and 40% American oak. It was bottled without filtration and is an outstanding wine made from their vineyards that are over 30 years of age. Loads of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice, vanilla, blackcurrants and black cherries jump from the glass and flavors of this full-bodied wine that has light tannin in the finish. This wine is still youthful and likely to improve over the next few years and last for a decade or more. The final blend was 98% Tempranillo and 2% Graciano."


90/100 James Suckling (2012 Vintage)
"A big, rich wine with some earthy depth. A little soft at the finish for this modern style, but solid and distinctive."
