  • The Wine Advocate at tasting this wine with Luis Gutierrez awarded it 91 points Parker. "The 2011 Finca la Emperatriz Crianza has a forward personality, quite aromatic and open, with showy notes of smoky bacon that transported me to the Northern Rhône for a minute. It is, of course, mostly Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% white Viura from different plots in the estate fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured for 14 months in American (80%) and French oak barrels. This should be readily available as 172,800 bottles were produced. Very good value for the quality. ".
