From the Critics:
- "The entry-level 2009 Pruno is predominantly Tempranillo with dollops of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. Opaque purple in color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of earthy minerality, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Velvety-textured, sweetly-fruited, layered, relatively forward, and lengthy, this seamless effort admirably reveals the strengths of the great 2009 vintage and is a superb value to boot. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."
"Finca Villacreces has a well-deserved reputation as one of the finest producers in the DO of Ribera del Duero." (06/11) -
- "Warm, light, summer fruit nose. Rich, musky fruit on the palate to start then tannins kick in on the mid-palate but they are mild and well-integrated. Pleasant length with a soft, musky tannin finish." (11/12)
