Product Description

“The entry-level 2013 Macán Clásico is a cuvée from their 130 plots of vineyards in the Sonsierra zone of Rioja. It matured in barrel for one year before it was bottled. They tend to harvest quite early. "We start with the reds when people are finishing with the whites," Pablo Álvarez told me, and that probably was beneficial in a harvest when there was a lot of rain. This 2013 showed quite elegant and fresh, with more red fruit and sweet spices (cinnamon, vanilla), quite approachable. The oak seems better integrated than in previous years. It's very tasty, with the spices covering the sweet tannins and a long, very tasty and lively finish. Fresh and drinkable, sweeter and more accessible than the regular Macán.” Wine Advocate 92 Points

“Opaque ruby. Intense red and dark berry scents, along with suggestions of toasty oak, cigar box and vanilla. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering juicy cherry and blackberry flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Still a bit youthfully compact, but there's good energy here. Closes smoky, youthfully tannic and long, with lingering mocha and cherry pie notes.” Vinous 92 Points

“Deep cherry red. Spicy and richly fruited – the sweetness of blueberry and blackberry, and some vanilla sweetness, but there is s still a rather nice dusty, savoury quality. The fruit seems to smell sweeter – redder – with air. Much more savoury on the palate. There’s plenty of fruit but there’s also a dry leathery quality and more elegance than I expected. Creamy texture on the mid palate and then chewy tannins on the finish.” Jancis Robinson 16.5 Points
