  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($58) Opaque purple. Energetic, mineral-accented raspberry and cassis aromas are complicated by violet, graphite and smoky bacon; smells like it's from the northern Rhone. Fresh red and dark berry flavors are refreshingly bitter and precise, with a peppery floral quality building with air. The very long finish offers racy cherry skin and mineral impressions. Wonderfully balanced and strikingly complex wine. (Grapes of Spain, Lorton, VA)

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    The 2004 Neo, from a better vintage than the 2003, is a more hedonistic effort. It is more expansive aromatically and offers greater complexity on the palate. This opulent wine is full-bodied, layered, and concentrated. Its structure is well-hidden but, make no mistake, this wine should blossom over the next 8-10 years for those with patience and will provide pleasure through 2030.

    This dense Spanish red shows power and harmony. It fills the palate with black plum, dark chocolate, mineral and game flavors, ripe, rich and thick. Muscular tannins dominate, but this remains focused and balanced. Sweet fruit and spice linger on the finish. 1,400 cases made.

The attention this boutique winery has been receiving is very well-deserved. The project is the fulfillment of a dream for three young men - Javier Ajenjo, Julio Cesar Conde, and Jose Luis Simon - who are creating stunning wines. Isaac Fernandez - the nephew of Mariano Garcia, ex-winemaker for Vega Sicilia - excels at bringing the myriad faces of Tempranillo to its fullest potential with the "Neo" wines. They are 100% Tempranillo, grown in limestone and clay soils within a continental climate that sees quite a disparity between daytime and nighttime temperatures. The vines are 50+ years old and the wines, vinified separately by lot, are aged in new French oak for 14 months.
