Critical Acclaim

"As for the 2008 Impulsivo en Chamberlin, it is a dense purple color with a remarkably complex bouquet of smoke, licorice, tar, violets, exotic spices, blackberry, and black raspberry. Dense, powerful, and mouth-filling, this layered, plush effort has a finish that keeps on going. It is a total turn-on that will continue to provide pleasure for another 12-15 years."

"Saturated in every way, this sappy, spicy, almost surreal Tempranillo piles on the wild, gamy fruit, the mineral-infused base, the leaf and forest flavors, all around tart berry flavors. Amazingly deep color, fine-grained tannins, a sweetly herbal character, and great balance throughout."
94 Points

"Deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines currant, cherry, chocolate, licorice, smoke and flowers. Large-scaled, fat and deep, with impressive palate presence to the sweet flavors of black cherry and licorice. An extravagant version of tempranillo, with its sweet tannins buried under a wave of fruit."
