94 Luis Gutierrez - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Pagos Viejos is a blend from different plots of old-vine Tempranillo over 50 years old, from the villages of Laguardia, Elvillar and Leza, fermented in open wooden vats and aged for fifteen months in French oak barrels. It’s a backward and tight wine, initially showing some wood, but it soon comes back with fresh red fruit with the depth and complexity of the old vines. Sweet, polished tannins, very persistent, a great subtle wine, power with elegance. Superb! Drink 2014-2025. "
