"Expressive flavors of black cherry, mulled plum, dark chocolate, licorice and mineral mingle in this harmonious red. Offers a sleek texture and a solid structure, matching power with elegance. Impressive, in the modern style. Drink now through 2021."
Wine Advocate 93
"I tasted two vintages of their top cuvée, starting with their first vintage: the 2011 Triga that is a blend of old vine Monastrell from five old vineyards in the Salinas, Umbría and La Sima mountains. It includes some 15% Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1981 in Sierra Salinas, all from chalky soils. Only the grapes from their oldest vineyards are used for this wine that was fermented in 5,000-kilo stainless-steel vats and went through malolactic and 20-month aging in oak barriques (mostly French, with 10% American). This is a super selection of the best barrels they have, and less than half of the barrels make it to the final blend. The nose has a combination of black fruit and Mediterranean herbs with well-integrated oak, good harmony and elegance. The palate is medium to full-bodied with very fine tannins, good freshness and persistence with chalky sensations that stick to your teeth, graphite flavors and a warm finish. It's an intense wine, powerful and Mediterranean, truthful to its birthplace and vintage, quite fresh for the year. This wine was released one year ago, but some bottles are still available in the market. If you like Mediterranean, ripe and powerful wines, you should grab this as the price is great for the quality."
International Wine Cellar 92
"(85% monastrell and 15% cabernet sauvignon; malo and aging in 80% French and 20% American oak): Opaque purple. Explosive black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by notes of licorice, Indian spices and floral oils. Rich and expansive but showing unlikely finesse thanks to bright acidity. Sweet blueberry and cassis flavors stain the palate and linger on a very long, intensely spicy, focused finish. Australian winemaker Chris Ringland consults here."
Good full bodied wine.

Well crafted wine - This is a well crafted wine - a little different than a typical Spanish, but a good value for the price. I would suggest giving it some time.
