Reviews:

"Alluring aromas of toast and smoke follow through on the palate of this oaky red. Just enough black cherry fruit for balance and plenty of firm tannins for structure. Drink now through 2008. 15 cases imported. –TM " -Rated 87, Wine Spectator

"What Romeo has achieved in the challenging 2002 vintage is impressive. The very limited production 2002 Contador (100% old vine Tempranillo) reveals great purity and texture as well as that nobility and stature found in all of the world’s most profound wines. I’ll keep my tasting notes short as there are fewer than twenty cases for the USA market. It possesses fabulous richness, full body, sweet tannin, and 10-16 years of longevity. It can be drunk now or cellared. The prices for these wonderful curiosities reflect their rarity as well as the high quality winemaking." -Rated 96, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Made from hand-selected individual berries: herbs and citrus on the nose, big fruit, soft tannins, amazing. " -Rated 5 Stars, Decanter

" Good ruby-red. Plum, currant, mocha, leather and smoke on the slightly reduced nose. Very concentrated and densely packed, with classically dry black raspberry and smoky oak flavors complicated by a saline nuance. Finishes with very good length." -Rated 90, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
