"This firm, solid red offers expressive flavors of mineral, smoke, blackberry, herb and licorice. A big wine that remains balanced. Best from 2012 through 2020. 3,300 cases made. -TM" (09/11) - 90PtsWine Spectator
"The 2008 Elias Mora Crianza spent 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. It offers up aromas of balsamic, balsam wood, blackberry, tar, and licorice. Dense, rich, savory, and nicely proportioned, this lengthy effort will continue to fill out for another 1-2 years and provide enjoyment through 2020."
"The following three wines from Bodegas y Vinedos Elias Mora, located in the DO of Toro, were made from 100% Tinta de Toro, the local clone of Tempranillo, and bottled without filtration." (06/11) - 90PtsJay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Vivid purple. Aromas of cherry pit, redcurrant, licorice and dark chocolate. Supple and dense but fresh, offering spicy red and black fruits, fresh herbs and mounting spiciness. This youthful, tightly wound wine finishes with firm, ripe tannins and very good persistence." (10/11) - 90PtsJosh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
