89 points "A fine value, the 2000 Allende (100% Tempranillo aged 13 months in primarily French oak and bottled unfiltered) exhibits a dense garnet/ruby/purple-tinged color as well as striking nose of lead pencil shavings, black currants, and cherries. Rich, elegant, and medium-bodied, with excellent purity as well as nicely integrated wood, acidity, and tannin, it should be enjoyed over the next 5-7 years." Best 2004-2010

"Finca Allende 2000 Rioja Spain There’s a slightly minerally edge to the fresh, crushed red fruits nose which is really appealing. The palate is savoury with lots of fresh, bright fruit. Nice density. It’s very pure, fruity and expressive. A delicious modern-styled Rioja. Very good/excellent 92/100 (£13.95 Berry Bros & Rudd) "
