Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2011 Victorino is produced with Tempranillo grapes from 35 hectares of ungrafted, old vineyards in the villages of Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente, which fermented with yeasts selected from their own vineyards and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months. This is the fruitier and more approachable of the three wines I tasted from them, with aromas of clean, ripe, terse fruit, with hints of violets and a pinch of spices mixed with echoes from the soil. The palate is full-bodied, with glossy tannins, dense and ripe, with very good acidity, balanced and elegant. It?s approachable, but should develop more complexity with time in the bottle. 40,000 bottles produced. Drink 2014-2019.  (Aug 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - A firm structure supports the plush texture of this rich red. Savory notes of espresso and anise mingle with a deep core of plum, black olive and mineral. Best from 2016 through 2026.T.M.  (Jun 4 2014)

Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2011 Victorino was cropped at 18.5 hectoliters per hectare between September 25 and October 4 and is currently being matured for 20 months in new Bordeaux barrels (due to be bottled July 2013). The nose already displays good minerality, although it is quite terse and laconic at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very well-integrated oak that lends a slight creamy texture. This offers great freshness and is already tightly knit on the finish. This has great potential. Drink 2016-2025+ (Apr 2013)
