Robert Parker, Wine Advocate – 90 points

“The 2013 Las Claras (2,000 cases produced) comes from a vineyard planted in 1986, and spent eight months in new French oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of cassis, licorice, new saddle leather, charcoal and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied and fleshy with excellent purity as well as depth, it should drink well for 5-6 years.”
