Critical Acclaim: 96 pts James Suckling; 91 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Tasting Notes: "Blackberries and cherries with dark walnuts and graphite on the nose. Full-bodied with firm and creamy tannins and a long, caressing finish. The quality of the tannins is really impressive here. Fresh and curated texture to this wine. Step-up in quality here. 100% tinta de toro. Lovely to drink now, but will be even better in 2023." - James Suckling.
"The most approachable of the reds is the 2018 Termes, which comes through as classical, with complexity and freshness and is easy to drink. It's ripe without excess, and the oak is neatly integrated after 16 months in 225- and 400-liter French oak barrels, 20% of them new. It's clean and balanced, with a soft texture and round tannins. It finishes supple and with varietal flavors. 140,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2020."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
