Product Description

“Enticing aromas of ripe strawberries and raspberries with a mineral and salty character. Iodine, too. Tree bark. Full body, fine-grained and concentrated tannins and a long and clean, salty and light coffee finish. Great balance and structure. As it should be.” James Suckling 96 Points

“Ruby-red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry pit, cured tobacco and toasty oak, joined by a vanilla nuance that builds in the glass. Juicy red currant and bitter cherry flavors show very good depth and complementary nuances of mocha, spicecake and rose pastille. Finishes smoky and very long, featuring gently firming tannins and lingering florality.” Vinous 92 Points

“There is a clear step up from the Cune range to Imperial, starting with the 2011 Imperial Reserva. Cropped from a ripe vintage, it is the usual Tempranillo with some Graciano and a pinch of Mazuelo fermented in stainless steel and matured in oak barrels for two years. This is braver than the 2010, with more present tannins, still young and unevolved. It has the elements to develop more complexity with hints of spices and leather, fruit and American wood notes. The palate is medium-bodied, perhaps not as expressive and open as the 2010. One more year in bottle should do it good.” Wine Advocate 91 Points

“Black currant and kirsch flavors mingle with dark chocolate and espresso notes in this rich red. Smoky and tarry notes add a savory element. Firm tannins support the polished texture, while balsamic acidity lingers on the spicy finish.” Wine Spectator 90 Points
