5 out of 5 starsReviewed on May 25, 2017

Antonio Galloni Presents Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Sexy aromas of red berry preserves, Indian spices and pipe tobacco, with a floral topnote. The palate offers sappy raspberry and cherry-cola flavors, with suggestions of candied flowers and mocha. Finishes sweet and long, with resonating floral notes and smooth, even tannins." 92 Pts

Wine & Spirits: "Pure in its expression of place, Villacreces is a selection from low-yielding vines among the 160 acres that the winery tends in Quintanilla de Onésimo. Ripe red fruit scents dominate this wine, along with aromas of anise and spice. The oak is well integrated, perceptible in the smooth texture yet not imparting any overt wood flavors. The fruit has such depth that it invites a second glass, while also suggesting a long life ahead." 93 Pts

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Finca Villacreces also mixes 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet and 4% Merlot and shows a little bit riper and more concentrated than the 2010, very powerful, with plenty of extract and abundant tannins that coat your mouth. It has lactic touches and flavors of ripe black fruit, but the finish is slightly drying and bitter. Enjoy with winter dishes. Drink now-2018." 90 Pts
