Critical Acclaim

James Suckling

Sweet plum, cigar tobacco and Spanish cedar on the nose. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a polished, caressing finish. Attractive chocolate and walnut flavors, too. Drink now.

Tim Atkin

The villages of San Vicente and Ábalos supply the grapes for this stylish, aromatic, sweetly oaked Tempranillo, aged in mixed French and American oak barrels. Freshness and acidity are a feature of the bodega's wines, even in hotter Mediterranean years such as 2015. 2021-25

COMMENTARY: The 2015 Ramirez de la Piscina drinks nicely and shows a pleasing tang in the aftertaste. TASTING NOTES: This wine serves up aromas and flavors of red fruits, savory spices, and chalkiness. Pair it with pan-seared flap steak topped with chopped white onions.
