Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 95
The blockbuster 2001 Calvario is a single vineyard Rioja produced from 90% Tempranillo, 8% Grenache, and 2% Graciano, all from vines planted in 1945. Aged in new French oak for 14 months, and bottled unfiltered, it is a sensational effort revealing an inky/purple color along with gorgeously complex aromas of cedar, blackberries, creme de cassis, scorched earth, minerals, and smoky new oak. This full-throttle, seriously endowed effort coats the palate and nearly stains the teeth. Unevolved and rich, but impeccably balanced, even elegant given its total symmetry/harmony, it should hit its prime in 2-4 years, and age gracefully for the following 12-15.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 92
A powerhouse. It has an inky color, roasted aromas of espresso and tobacco, and intense flavors of bitter chocolate, plum, prune and mineral supported by muscular tannins. Not typical, but has an intense character. Best from 2005 through 2012. 125 cases imported.-TM
