"This is closer in style to Las Beatas than the La Estrada or El Velado. Tabuerniga is elegant and all about finesse, with incredible balance. The palate, while also having that elegance,has the juiciness and weight of the old-time Riojas. The nose does not stop changing anddeveloping more nuances, flowers and aromatic herbs, even if it’s not as expressive as Las Beatas. This is really a superb debut. I think this is going to be a very important wine in the Telmo Rodríguez portfolio, maybe even challenging Las Beatas! ” - Luis Gutierrez
