Wine Enthusiast

What a beauty! Masculine aromas of black fruits, cola and oak sit there begging to be sipped, while the lush, deep palate is home to dense blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors. Lively but dense, with tannins, plenty of oak and a finish of black pepper, fudge and vanilla. Complex and exciting Spanish wine. Needs time; best from 2012 through 2018.

Score: 95. —Michael Schachner, April 01, 2010.

Wine Spectator

Dense yet lively, this chewy Spanish red delivers cherry, berry, licorice, mineral and smoke notes. The tannins are firm, yet the wine remains fresh and clean. Oaky, but well-grounded. Best from 2011 through 2017.

Score: 92. —Thomas Matthews, June 15, 2010.

International Wine Cellar

Inky purple. Very rich aromas of dark cherry, plum and mocha. Displays fresher berry qualities on the palate, with slow-mounting minerality adding welcome lift. Deep, chewy and serious, with powerful tannins contributing structure. As this sat in the glass, it became more lively, picking up a black raspberry note and losing some of its brooding character. Leaves smoky minerals behind on the long, chewy finish. This needs some time to stretch out.

Score: 90+. —Josh Raynolds,

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Dominio de Atauta was aged in 20-30% new oak. Purple-colored, it exhibits an expressive nose of mineral, violets, blackberry, and black cherry. Quite structured on the palate and in need of a minimum of 4-6 years of additional cellaring, time will tell whether this wine achieves harmony. At the moment, the tannins have the upper hand.

Score: 87. —Jay Miller, June 2009.
