Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
A friend invited me over and served this from a decanter along with some wood grilled pork. So I had no idea what we were drinking other than a Spanish red. Whilst it looked a little dark and moody in the glass, it was as soft as ermine and got better with the food. My friend asked me what I thought. I said 'Wow.' He said, 'Not only 'Wow', but just over ten euros a bottle.' Win win.
Maybe it's just this bottle. Hope so as I have a couple more. Very disappointed and having worked in the region I know what to expect from this wine and it just wasn't there. Not rounded, not full bodied, not a pleasant drink. Will leave the other two bottles for a few months and hope they are better.
One of my favourite reds

Nice easy wine
Nice easy wine. Full-bodied, oaky, blackberry, black fruit, leather, tobacco, vanilla The taste is deep and intense - with a fine and delicate structure. Very long finish.

Finca Villacreces is one of those wineries that are gifted by nature: located in the renowned Milla de Oro (the Golden Mile) in Ribera del Duero, their vineyards border those of Vega Sicilia and its surroundings (pine woods, olive groves and junipers) not only feature beautiful scenery but add a particular identity to their wines. There is no doubt about the quality of the wines produced by Finca Villacreces and the reputation of the winery is enhanced by that of the other...
