98/100 Cellartracker: "A beautiful wine and a testament to Tempranillo blends... Wow... Cherries, dried cranberry, raspberry, dried sage, brilliant high toned acidity, sweet tannins... This wine was opened, not decanted, and enjoyed over 3 hours. Color was medium garnet and the persistence of flavor was remarkable... How can this wine be 50+ years old? How can I be? Rhetorical questions without doubt... By the way, the SQN in the abstract wasn't to shabby either".
98/100 Cellartracker: "The '64 had an element of freshness that the others did not. Classic Riojo nose of dried fruit and a little barnyard/funk. Pallate was pure freshness and dried cherries. Blind, I would have guessed it was only a few years old. How can this thing be 51+ years! Plenty of structure and acid on the back to carry this for a long while. Compared to the 1991s we've had recently, this is pure muscle and needs a bit more time. I'd guess 10-20 years or more. Glad there are 2 more in the cellar!".
98/100 Cellartracker: "Powerful nose with layers of aroma; black fruits, saddle leather, dried meat and tobacco. It's constantly changing every time you return to the glass. This is stunning and still so youthful, it has precision and clarity of flavour with pure black fruit balanced by perfect acidity, some real grip and layers of leather, tobacco smoke and meaty flavour. An absolutely stunning bottle".
97/100 Cellartracker: "The best Rioja I've had. So banlanced and executed so well. Incredible to think this was a 43 year old bottle!".
95/100 Wine Spectator: "Extraordinary. Sweet vanilla and dried berry aromas and flavors have an unexpected richness in this vibrant red. Impressive for its balance of concentration and elegance. The long finish defines traditional Rioja at its best".
