Initial oaky aromas dissipate and settle on road tar blackness. A lush, fleshy palate is braced with acidity, while this gran reserva tastes of plum, cassis, tobacco and brown sugar. Fresh acidity creates length on a finish with mocha, chocolate and spice flavors. This needs more time to show its best; drink through 2028. Score: 93, Michael Schachner, April 1, 2019

Produced with grapes from a dry and low-yielding year, the 2012 Gran Reserva Limited Edition is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 9% Mazuelo, 8% Garnacha and 3% Graciano selected from a diversity of plots and soils. The destemmed grapes fermented in stainless steel, and the wine matured in American oak barrels for 29 months. 2012 was a warm year, and it shows in the wine. This also feels like a different era, especially when compared with the latest wines from 2012. It has a combination of a classical and more modern/clean profile. It has developed aromas and notes of bottle age. This is a selection of the most age-worthy vineyards from their estate, but it's not the same as Castillo Ygay. It's selected after one year in barrel for the potential the wine shows. 63,846 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2015. Score: 93, Luis Gutierrez, June 28, 2019

Spice and vanilla aromas give way to cherry and berry flavors in this silky red. Light, well-integrated tannins and orange peel acidity keep this focused. Polished and supple, but has depth. In the traditional style. Drink now through 2026. 5,307 cases made, 132 cases imported. - TM Score: 90, Thomas Matthews, 2019
