The 2012 As Caborcas is a worthy follow up of the superb 2010, with a tantalizing nose of wild berries and some damp earth, with an herbal twist. This cool climate red from a dry growing season achieved perfect ripening, as the old vines in those granite north and west facing terraces have very balanced vines. The palate is medium-bodied with good tension and fluidity with very fine tannins and superb balance. This is superb... 2,736 bottles produced. LUIS GUTIERREZ, erobertparker.com

Fresh, bright and lively. Aromas of roses, blueberries and minerals. Full body, delicious fruit. Fine tannins and a clean finish. Made from a single vineyard field blend of mencia, merenzao (trousseau), garnacha tintorera, sousón, godello blanco and godello tinto. JAMES SUCKLING
