92+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The entry level 2015 Petalos del Bierzo, their regional wine, in the new official category that will start working in the appellation from the 2017 vintage, a blend of many different vineyards planted with field blends, where the breakdown might come to some 5% white varieties (Valenciana/Doña Blanca, Godello and Palomino/Jerez) and around 1% other reds (Pan y Carne, Negrada and Gran Negro), all from vines ranging between 40 and 90 years of age on slopes (half of the grapes around the village of Corullón and the remainder in the rest of Bierzo). It's a showy, approachable, aromatic and open version of Pétalos, and as I tasted it later on in the season, it felt more polished and round, with a lush texture. It's extremely aromatic, in a way similar to the 2012. This is always one of the best values not only of Bierzo but for the whole of Spain." -LG, 8/31/17

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"This fresh red shows black cherry and red plum flavors that mingle with savory notes of licorice, charred herb and espresso. Firm, tangy acidity is more prominent than the light tannins. The finish shows a refreshing bitterness. Drink now through 2021. 25,000 cases made." –TM, 2017
