"The 2017 Redoma is a field blend of typical grapes aged for 20 months in large and old wooden vats. It comes in at just 13% alcohol. This was the final blend and out of cask, but it was a couple of weeks from bottling when seen. Not showing any more stuffing than the Vertente, this does show more finesse. It has silky texture and impressive lift to the fruit. The structure here is better too, and that lift makes this fresh red a wine that will be a pleasure to drink. It's enlivening and almost mouthwatering. It will pair perfectly with food and age effortlessly. You can drink this young, as it is very refined, but the power does come out with air, so that would be a mistake. Giving it a few years in the cellar would be nice, for it and for you." - Wine Advocate, 96 points
