Critical Acclaim

SP88 Wine Spectator Dec 31, 2008

"Dark in color and off-dry, displaying caramel, milk chocolate, fig paste and smoke notes. Well balanced. An easy style to appreciate. Drink now. 100 cases imported." (88 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Dec 2014

"The NV Contrabandista is a blend of the style called medium dry that is usually a very commercial category of cheap sherries. It is an off-dry blend of Palomino produced in an Amontillado way (biological + oxidative aging) and around 5% Pedro Ximénez with 30 grams of residual sugar which averages 18 years of age. It’s has a mahogany color, with a bright amber border with aromas of dates and raisins that give a sapid, bittersweet sensation in a medium-bodied palate of moderate sweetness. This is easy to drink. (Luis Gutiérrez)" (89 pts.)

SP89 Wine Spectator Web only – 2013

"Delivers a caressing feel, with caramel, prune, toffee and pecan notes. Well-embedded acidity carries the finish and adds life. Ever so slightly fluid in the end, presenting a lingering hint of coffee." (89 pts.)

Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
