Hacienda el Ternero Selección Crianza 2012
The 2012 Crianza Selección, pure Tempranillo from slightly older vines, was kept in vat for one year after fermentation followed by 14 months in French oak barrels. It was my favourite of all the reds today, with some bright cherry aromas, a mélange of spices and a clean, modern profile without excess, denoting freshness, balance and elegance. The palate is very much in line with what the nose pointed at, a sleek and elegant red slightly marked by the élevage but with balance and stuffing to overcome it and gain complexity in bottle. Drink date: 2016-2020. Score - 91+. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, Aug. 30, 2016)
