Critical Acclaim

"The shockingly great 2004 Impulsivo “En Chamberlin Vineyard” is 100% Tempranillo from yields of a microscopic 0.8 tons/acre and was aged in French oak, 60% new. Opaque purple, it reveals an impressive bouquet of minerals, scorched earth, truffles, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. With its multi-dimensional personality already exhibiting complexity, the wine is layered and impressively concentrated, structured and impeccably balanced. Give it 6-8 years of further bottle age and drink it through 2040. In the past year, the only Tempranillos I have tasted at this level of quality are the 2004 Pingus and the 2004 Contador. "
98 Points

"Supple, lithe and generous with its earthy, meaty blackberry and dusky spice flavors, which linger on the polished finish. A bit hot, but the flavor profile is unique. Tempranillo."
90 Points

"Good deep red-ruby. Sexy, carnal aromas of smoked dark berries, mocha, espresso, black olive and roasted meat. Saline, superconcentrated and sappy, with very good density to its flavors of redcurrant and cranberry. Finishes with excellent energy and length."
