(WA 92-94 points) The 2008 La Nieta, tasted from barrel, is purple-colored with a racy, slightly high-toned perfume of mineral, lavender, spice box, incense, and black cherry. This is followed by a dense, structured wine with plenty of savory fruit for balance. This will be an elegant version of La Nieta that should evolve for 4-5 years and drink well through 2030. - Jay S Miller

This is a great wine, from a vintage that wasn't great. The nose is smooth and rich, with raspberry, plum, fine oak and all the spice that comes with it. The palate feels fresh and healthy, with racy blackberry fruit... This is a great wine, from a vintage that wasn't great. The nose is smooth and rich, with raspberry, plum, fine oak and all the spice that comes with it. The palate feels fresh and healthy, with racy blackberry fruit tempered by creamy chocolate, vanilla and spice. Like most high-end wines from the Eguren family, this is right on the money. Drink now through 2018.

92+ Inky purple. A highly fragrant bouquet displays red fruit and floral qualities, with an intense spicy note and a hint of musky herbs. Pliant blackberry and cherry cola flavors close down with air but show impressive... 92+ Inky purple. A highly fragrant bouquet displays red fruit and floral qualities, with an intense spicy note and a hint of musky herbs. Pliant blackberry and cherry cola flavors close down with air but show impressive depth and power. The finish features hints of candied licorice, flowers and Asian spices, along with a touch of white pepper. This unevolved wine really deserves patience. -- Josh Raynolds

A firm and racy wine with dried fruit, mineral and dust. Pie crust too. Full body, chewy tannins and a linear and persistent finish. 100% tempranillo from an estate-owned vineyard in the vicinity of the Páganos village...

Smoke, toast and mineral notes mingle in this firm red, backing ripe blackberry and licorice flavors. This offers juicy acidity, good focus and a clean, leafy finish. Drink now through 2015. – TM
