Talking About the Wines:
-The Wine Advocate, Mar '17 gave 92 points to 2014 Viña Pedrosa Crianza. "This has an elegant texture with very fine tannins and very good freshness. This is as classical as it gets in Ribera del Duero, and very representative of the house style, with very clean oak and balance to develop for a very long time. A benchmark for Crianza wines from Ribera del Duero."
-Vinous Media (Explore All Things Wine), Dec '15 gave 92 points to 2011 Viña Pedrosa Crianza. "Sexy, oak-spiced cherry and dark berry scents are complemented by mocha, candied licorice and vanilla, with a peppery element adding lift. Lush yet energetic, with strong closing thrust and supple tannins building slowly and adding gentle grip."
-eRobertParker.com, Oct '15 gave 91 points to 2012 Viña Pedrosa Crianza. "The nose is a good combination of fruit, balsamic/herbal and spicy aromas that are quite elegant and sleek. The medium-bodied palate has the house's fine tannins and balancing acidity to juicy, succulent flavors and fresh finish."
