"I loved the nose of the 2014 Antídoto, which is Tempranillo produced from grapes from the Soto de San Esteban zone in the Soria province, the cooler part of Ribera del Duero. They are slowly increasing the 600-liter barrels they use (perhaps 30% this year) and the rest of the wine aged in well-seasoned, quite neutral 225-liter Bordeaux barrels. This is all produced with purchased grapes with some 30% of them coming from the vineyards owned by David Hernando. I found it very perfumed and open, with character, no oak whatsoever and a wild side to it that made me think of a northern Rhône, somehow herbal (think raspberry leaf!). The palate is medium-bodied with fine-gained tannins and very good balance and freshness, approachable but with enough concentration and seriousness to be able to stand to food and age in bottle for a few years. The nose and palate are consistent with each other: you find what you expect...very good value."~Luis Gutierrez

"A red with dried meat, pine needles and dark fruit. Full body, focused concentration and a persistent finish. Fine tannins."
Good value but needs time - Quite pleasant in the mouth but seems a little rustic and a little austere with abundant fine tannins and dark fruit. It was much improved after having been open for 24 hours so I think it needs one to two years more in the bottle for everything to settle down, at which point it should be very nice indeed
