The eponymous red 2015 Prieto Pariente is a 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha from a warm, healthy vintage when they had to harvest earlier to keep the acidity and avoid overripeness. The two varieties fermented separately with indigenous yeasts in 2,500-liter vats after a four-day cold soak. Halfway through the fermentation, it was pressed and put to finish fermentation in 300-liter oak barrels without skins. Malolactic is in barrel and the aging was extended until bottling in September 2016. It had aromas of very high ripeness, dried plums and nuts, and some tree bark-like aromas that gave it a rustic profile with some beeswax and honey undertones. It's a little earthy, and the palate revealed some earthy, somehow rustic tannins. Drink Date: 2017-2020. Score - 90. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2017)
