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

87 points "Firm, wrapping a core of bright cranberry fruit flavors with licorice and floral notes in a thick frame of tannins. Needs time or food to soften. Best after 2006. 3,000 cases imported. (TM)" Best 2006-
