"Brambleberries, underbrush, bracken, cedar and loads of dark cherries and plums. Full body, fresh acidity and a tangy, medium-long finish. A very well poised red that’s beautiful to drink now, but should improve within a couple of years."
92+ Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2015 La Grola is a terrific wine, both food friendly and accessible. The blend is 90% Corvina with 10% Oseleta, which adds color and richness to the overall wine, thanks to the grape's small and compact berry size. You get terrific value here in a wine that has the aromatic intensity and textural fiber to stand up to barbecued meats or tri-tip. The fact that the wine's tannins are slightly more contained and soft means La Grola would beautifully match those spicy and smoky flavors. Some 200,000 bottles were produced."

"A blend of 90% Corvina Veronese and 10% Oseleta, this alluring red opens with aromas of wild berry, tobacco and a whiff of coffee bean. It's elegant and full bodied, offering ripe plum, black cherry, star anise and ground pepper alongside taut fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025."
