94 Points! The 2008 La Cueva de Contador is 100% Tempranillo aged for 18 months in new French oak. This purple-colored Rioja offers up a striking nose of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, lilacs, espresso, and blackberry. Savory, ripe, sweetly-fruited, and incipiently complex, it will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2028, if not longer. - robertparker.com

93+ Points! Glass-staining ruby. Deep dark berry and cherry liqueur aromas are strongly marked by sexy vanillin oak and potpourri. The palate offers intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors, with energetic mineral and floral pastille notes and sweet mocha on the back end. Powerful, impressively concentrated and lively to boot, finishing with strong thrust and sappy persistence. This is still a baby. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media, 2011
