93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and dense, this red shows a brooding character, with woodsy and loamy earth notes framing a core of currant and tar. Muscular tannins are well-integrated, and juicy acidity keeps this lively. Harmonious. Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2030. (12/31/18)"

92 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The value among the reds is the 2015 Selección Especial, a blend of 66% Tempranillo, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 2% Merlot, a blend decided through blind tastings, with fruit from the different plots of vineyard in the estate. It opened up spectacularly as it sat in the glass; it took some time to get focused, and some early lactic notes disappeared to give way to ripe fruit without excess, licorice and even a floral touch. It's nicely crafted and balanced, combining power and elegance. It kept developing and unfurling nice aromas as it sat in the glass, tangerine peel, tonka beans, sweet spices... Great complexity for the price. Drink: 2018-2022. (Aug 2018)"
