I prefer the 2002 Calvario, which offers blackberry, licorice, autumn leaves and mulberry on a well-defined bouquet that demands coaxing. The palate is sweet and rounded on the entry, but exhibits greater backbone and composure than the 2001, with attractive raspberry leaf, bitter cherry and soy on the long, satisfying finish. Drink now-2022. (NM)
(from a single vineyard planted in 1945) Saturated ruby-red. Wonderfully pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, licorice and minerals. Sweet, dense and concentrated, with captivating black fruit flavors lifted by vibrant acidity. Not overly sweet or fleshy but sappy, long and gripping. A terrific 2002 Rioja. 91+ (ST)
Rich, with dark, powerful flavors of coffee and plum. Minerally notes, assertive tannins and a smoky finish. A bit tough now, but should smooth with age. (TM)
