Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 WA / 96 VM

The 2010 Contador was cropped later than the 2009, on October 7, 8 and 14. It is 99% Tempranillo with 1% Garnacha raised in new French oak for 19 months. Comparing it directly against the 2009, it has slightly more delineation and lift on the nose, which is taut and demonstrates great focus. After two hours, the nose has blossomed in similar fashion to the 2009, with an undertow of blood orange and crushed violets. The lower pH level and equivalent alcohol level shows through on the palate, which is beautifully balanced, with layers of ripe blackberry, creme de cassis and blueberry jam. The texture is satin-like with a generous finish. This will be a potent, sophisticated Contador destined to seduce wine-lovers in approximately 15 to 20 years. Drink 2018-2035.  - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

(86% tempranillo and 14% garnacha, from the estate's oldest vines; aged for 18 months in new French oak; 15% alcohol): Inky purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, incense and lavender, with a bright mineral overtone. Sappy, penetrating black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show excellent depth and energy, picking up floral pastille and vanilla nuances with air. Finishes with superb clarity, subtle tannins and outstanding, floral-driven persistence.--Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
