It's Rioja, son, but not as we know it!" Importer's Note

This is mostly garnacha with such juicy and cool fruit. Perfumed. Pure violets. The tannins are completely resolved and beautiful. Medium body. Ultra refined. Drink now. 97 Points JAMES SUCKLING

One of the four single-vineyard bottlings from Rioja, from a vineyard planted with a majority of Garnacha and Tempranillo, produced an unusually fine wine in 2016, even though it tends to be the more rustic of the single vineyards and has more tannins than the others. I'm talking about the 2016 El Velado, from a plot planted over 80 years ago. I find a bit of ripeness here and a little more rusticity on the palate, with grainy tannins and an earthy sensation. 1,500 bottles produced. 93 Points LUIS GUTIERREZ - WINE ADVOCATE
