Wine Advocate, 95 Points 

"They used a new 3,000-liter oak foudre for the élevage of the 2019 La Cautiva red, and the wine shows unusual spicy and smoky notes. It spent one year in the foudre and a further year in barrels. The wine shows a little riper than the 2020 I tasted next to it, which is a little unusual, because the year was cooler. It has 14% alcohol, as they harvested looking for acidity and pH rather than alcohol. The palate is much better: the wine is serious and balanced, with very fine tannins and a strong chalky sensation. It should integrate the oak with some more time in bottle, and the wine has the stuffing to do so. 4,000 bottles, 30 magnums and five double magnums produced. It was bottled in September 2021. Best After 2024." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"A wine made at the La Cautiva area, fermented using foot treaded 100% whole cluster. Post-fermentation maceration from 1 to 4 months (depending on the year), followed by its ageing for two winters in 3000-litre foudres. The winemaking process concludes with its gentle filtering and bottling." 

Alcohol: 14%
