I tasted a first tentative blend of the 2015 El Molar a few weeks before bottling, a very pale and delicate, perfumed and insinuating Garnacha. The bottling was finally delayed, so I didn't have time to taste the final version, hence the range of scores, which should be pretty accurate. In 2015 the volumes for El Molar were increased as new plantings came into production and the year was normal in terms of yields after a very short 2014. This is the first year the wine is produced with 100% full clusters, in a vintage when they had a bit of everything, higher ripeness but also freshness and balanced. The wine is rich and aromatic, a little intoxicating, with aromas of dry flowers and a touch of aromatic herbs. The palate shows ultra fine tannins and very good balance. GUTIERREZ, erobertparker.com
