92 View from the Cellar The 2016 Nuestro “15 Meses” Crianza from Bodegas Nuestro de Dias Bayo is from slightly older vines than their “8 Meses” bottling (thirty years of age, versus twenty) and hails from equally high altitude vineyards. The wine spends fifteen months of its elevage in a combination of French and American oak casks, and then another fifteen months of bottle aging in the cellar prior to release! The 2016 is excellent, offering up a deep, complex and still youthfully vibrant bouquet of black cherries, plums, cigar ash, dark soil tones, a nice mix of both spicy and smoky oak and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a superb core of fruit, fine soil signature, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, classy finish. This is an outstanding value, as even here in the over-heated US market, this sells for just over $25 per bottle! Fine juice! 2024-2050.
Issue # 85 - January/February 2020
92 Vinous Media Deep ruby-red. Cherry, black currant, baking spices and a hint of candied rose on the perfumed nose. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors that deepen with aeration. Smooth, well-knit tannins come in late on the impressively long, penetrating finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind. 2022 – 2029
