($75) Saturated medium ruby. Cassis, black raspberry and bitter chocolate on the nose. Juicy, high-pitched and penetrating, with primal black fruit and licorice flavors and a youthfully grapey perfume in the middle palate. Long on flavor but still a bit clenched from the bottling and dominated by new oak. Should ultimately merit a higher score.

About This Producer


Of this esteemed winery, importer Eric Solomon writes: "Artadi is about purity of extracted fruit with almost Burgundian textures. In fact, critics have often compared these wines to the top wines of Chambolle-Musigny and other top appellations of Burgundy. They are some of the most extraordinary examples of Tempranillo in the world."

Winemaker Juan Carlos Lopez de la Calle turned this former small cooperative into a Tempranillo powerhouse on the solid foundation of his elegant wines. Since the mid-1990s, when de la Calle took control of the property, it has grown to include 75 ha of vineyards in the high altitude, chalky soils of Rioja. French oak complements the mineral-laden fruit in the top cuvees. See all Spain producers
