Things start heating up with the awesome 2009 Pagos Viejos, which is a blend of Juan Carlos's old plots of vine. It demands coaxing from the glass, the broody dark berry, licorice-tinged fruit remaining bashful under a cloak of French oak, but intimating something alluring ten years down the line. The palate is full-bodied with a silky smooth texture, the oak singing from the same hymn sheet as the precocious fruit that is underpinned by super-fine tannins. It offers weightless intensity. The Pagos Viejos has fine symmetry and poise towards the finish with a just a faint tang of Seville orange marmalade on the aftertaste. Everything is in place - just add time. Drink 2018-2030. - Neal Martin

Minerally aromas of iodine, charred beef and burnt coffee are dark and smoky. This modern, smooth-bodied Rioja is freindly and complete on the palate, while flavors of dark berries, prune, chocolate and espresso push things in the direction of jammy. This is ripe to the max, with loads of fruit and flavor but a soft structure. Drink through 2020.

This bold red delivers mouthfilling plum and blackberry flavors, with plenty of espresso and toast from oak. Assertive tannins and a touch of heat add to the drive. A big wine in a modern style. Best from 2013 through... This bold red delivers mouthfilling plum and blackberry flavors, with plenty of espresso and toast from oak. Assertive tannins and a touch of heat add to the drive.
