Vinous 90 points - (aged for five months in older French and American oak): Opaque purple. Ripe dark berries, violet and smoky minerals on the fragrant nose, with a peppery element adding lift. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, offering sweet mulberry and boysenberry flavors that are given definition and cut by juicy acidity. Finishes with very good energy and thrust, leaving spice and floral notes behind.  (Sep 2014)

CRETA is a partnership between Eric Solomon & Isaac Fernandez Montana. Isaac is one of the team of winemakers working at Mariano Garcia’s family bodega, Mauro, located in Tudela del Duero. Mariano Garcia is perhaps Spain’s greatest winemaker and, with thirty vintages at Vega Sicilia under his belt, he is arguably one of the finest winemakers in the world. Isaac is Mariano’s nephew and great winemaking clearly seems to run in the family.
