Wine Spectator 93 points - The 2005 La Vina de Andres Romeo is a bit more brooding and backward. Opaque purple/black, it has an alluring nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Tightly wound but beautifully balanced, this is an opulent effort that requires patience. Give it 10-12 years of further aging and drink it from 2020 through 2040.
Wine Advocate 98 points - Expressive and graceful, this modern red shows bright berry and cherry fruit with floral, wild herb, smoky and spicy accents that power through the fresh texture and linger on the long, clean finish. Drink now through 2020. 16 cases imported. –TM
