94+ Points! The 2015 San Vicente was produced with 18 hectares of Tempranillo Peludo, a particular strain of Tempranillo planted from a massal selection in 1985 in the village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. The destemmed grapes fermented in French oak vats, and the wine matured in new oak barrels (90% French, 10% American) for 20 months. This really reminds me of the initial vintages of this wine, 1991 and 1994, but with the wisdom of the older vines, it feels very integrated and compact, in line with the 2005. It's a serious and balanced wine that's harmonious and has incipient complexity, with aromatic herbs and spices and a mixture of red and black fruit. It's elegant and medium-bodied, with fine-grained tannins, good grip and a remarkable finish. This has oak, but it feels quite integrated. It has the stuffing and balance to develop nicely in bottle. 2015 is behaving much better than expected. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

96 Points! The single vineyard 2015 San Vicente comes from an older clone of Tempranillo and spent 20 months in 90% French and 10% American oak, all being new. This blockbuster sports a saturated purple color as well as a powerful bouquet of smoked blueberries, black cherries, scorched earth, and lead pencil. Beautiful on the palate as well, it's full-bodied, has a seamless, incredibly elegant texture, no hard edges, and a great, great finish. It's a beautiful wine that will age for 2-3 decade - Jeb Dunnuck

94 Points! (raised in 90% French and 10% American oak barrels, all new, for two years) Youthful violet color. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes oak-spiced dark berries, potpourri, vanilla and incense, along with a smoky mineral overtone. Sappy, plush and seamless on the palate, offering deeply concentrated raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. The impressively long, spice-tinged finish displays sneaky tannins, outstanding clarity and an echo of candied rose. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
