"The 2010 Envejecido en Roble is aged in both French and American barrels for 8-10 months and spends one year in bottle before being sold. Sometimes these shorter times in barrel result in a less-than-perfect integration of wine and wood, and I must confess I am a little bit biased against this category of wines. Fortunately it is not the case here and the violet notes are perfectly integrated with the cinnamon and vanilla tones from the barrique. The palate is compact, light to medium-bodied, with great length and a spicy, velvety finish. This again represents good value for the category. Drink 2014-2019. " (08/13)

"Savory notes of smoke, cedar and iron mingle in this firm, fresh red, with a core of cherry and rose that shows depth and persistence. Not showy, but harmonious. Drink now through 2018. - TM" (02/14)

"Opaque ruby. Sexy dark berry, cherry and spicy oak aromas are complemented by licorice and mocha. Sappy, penetrating black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good depth and energy, picking up a smoky quality with aeration. Finishes sweet and long, with supple tannins and an energizing jolt of peppery spices." (10/13)

"The project was based on the restoration of an old dairy in the village of Dehesas in Ponferrada. The remodeling the building tried to combine the stone and slate of Bierzo area with wood, to be in line with traditional architecture in the area.
The project's objective was to give the winemaker all the necessary equipment to make wine in the most pure.
Each step of the process has been assigned a place with specific conditions of temperature, humidity and light...
Is the case in the barrel room, with not more than thousand oak barrels , manufactured by the most prestigious firms, mostly French oak. The quietness and darkness prevailing here, are interrupted only by our "bodeguero" (Carlos Garcia) or our winemaker and technical director of winery (Raúl Pérez), who are responsible for monitoring the evolution of the wines and determining the optimal timing of balance which ends this step." - Winery
