Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2008 Navaherreros Tinto, also 100% Garnacha, was aged in seasoned oak barrels. It displays greater aromatic complexity in its display of cigar box, Asian spices, incense, and black cherry. The wine has excellent volume, precision balance, lively acidity, and a pure, silky finish. It is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 5-6 years.  (Jun 2011)

Steve Tanzer 91 points - Vivid ruby. Red and dark berry preserves on the nose, with complicating notes of licorice and mocha. Lively raspberry and blackberry flavors stain the palate and show very good precision, complemented by an exotic floral quality that gains power with air. This suave wine finishes with strong cut and sweet persistence. (Nov 2010)

Producer
In 1923, Dr Vicente Álvarez-Villamil bought Bernabeleva, an estate in San Martín de Valdeiglesias (Madrid). It is located at the foot of the Cerro de Guisando and the Gredos mountains and adjacent to the Tórtolas stream that formed the border of two Roman provinces: Lusitania and Tarraconense. For decades, Dr Álvarez-Villamil’s descendants have fondly taken care of the old vines he planted, with the intention of someday producing quality honest wines. In Bernabeleva, we work the vineyard with a respect for balance with nature. Eco labels are not our aim, although we work to be worthy of them. The wines, produced from autochthonous varieties, show off differences in orientation, vegetation, altitude and soil of each locale. In the winery, we attempt to maintain the virtues of the raw material we obtain from the vineyard. Our wines express the characteristics of the vineyards and their surroundings, and our viticulture is in tune with its environment, for we understand it is the only way to work.
