El Viejo has 94… Parker points!

That El Viejo by Matsu is an incredible wine, that, we know. But now it has been confirmed by (until recently) Robert Parker’s taster for Spain, Neal Martin. And he does it by awarding the wine 94 points, placing it alongside wines from the Designation of Origin Toro that are up to four times more expensive than El Viejo.

Martin said “this is undoubtedly a sophisticated Toro red to which I am sure the elderly gentleman on the label would approve”. “It does have a beautifully defined bouquet, the oak assimilated into the pure dark berry fruit with style and class. The palate is smooth and caressing on the entry, building succinctly in the mouth towards a cashmere finish of licorice-tinged dark berries, spices and cloves”.
