92 Pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Predicador displays a nice, bright cherry color, with notes of licorice, dark fruits (plums, blackberries, and blueberries) and pungent spices (clove?). The medium-bodied palate reveals good work with the wood, which is very well-integrated and an acid spine that makes the wine long and fresh"
94 Pts. Guía Peñin - Extremely high value-for-money from Alta Rioja by one of the top winemakers. This 'younger brother' of Contador's icon wine is really an extremely well executed wine, combining the essence of high extraction from the Tempranillo and Mazuelo classical varieties and a modern cut. Very complex and sophisticated aromas of ripe red fruits, cassis, earth, caramel, toasted bread and balsamics. In mouth, it is full, long and very fresh.
