By the time Telmo Rodriguez returned to his family property in Rioja in 2010 he was already known on the international wine scene for his input in recovery of the old vineyards in many parts of Spain.
"Rioja must be one of the most evocative aromas there is. The combination of sweet oak and bramble fruit is instant and transportive – and this has it spot on. There's fortitude here too, with firmer tannins and fuller body than many of the classics (eg CVNE, Ardanza et al). In that way, it is the perfect blend of classic and modern, and it has incredible potential for an inexpensive wine – 20 years in bottle quite comfortably. When you get asked which one wine you could drink forever, this would be a strong contender. Drink through 2038"17+ points(2013 vintage), Richard Hemming, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, July 2021.
