Critical Acclaim

RP95+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Jun 2020

"There is a bit of an animal hint on the nose of the 2018 La Vizcaína El Rapolao, which Raúl Pérez tells me is always part of the character of the wine when it’s young. The difference with the 2017 is the quality of the tannins, which rounder and more elegant here, and the concentration, which is lower here, so this 2018 comes through as more fluid, fresh and elegant, with a silkier mouthfeel. They finally bought the vineyard in 2018, and the change in viticulture resulted in lower yields: they produced 6,000 bottles of this 2018, compared with the 10,000 bottles of the 2017. They have bought three more plots for this bottling, so volumes will grow in the future. The initial sensation fades after the wine has been in bottle for one hour, and it makes sense that it’s gong to disappear with some more time in bottle. Pérez thinks it might be related to the recent bottling. It was bottled in May 2020, a few weeks before I tasted it." (95+ pts.)

VN95 Vinous Jun 2021

"Vivid ruby-red. A highly expressive, complex bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, exotic spices, potpourri, and candied licorice. Palate-staining, appealingly sweet black raspberry, mulberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors show fine definition and a bracing core of smoky minerality. Displays outstanding tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the blue fruit, floral and spice notes." (95 pts.)

Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
