|2005: 90 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Reserva is 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuelo that spent 12 months in French and American oak followed by 24 months in bottle prior to release. More deeply colored than the Crianza, it displays an enticing perfume of wood smoke, spice box, violets, espresso, and blackberry. Voluminous and concentrated on the palate, it reflects the high quality of the vintage. This impeccably balanced wine has plenty of ripe tannin, superior length, and a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2025."
2004 Vintage 90 Points - Top 100 Wines of the Year, #52 - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator: "A silky texture carries expressive flavors of black plum, violet, licorice and smoke in this focused, balanced red. Has good intensity yet remains vibrant and accessible. Drink now through 2012."
