Decanter gave the 2018 Trus Crianza a whopping 96 points at their World Wine Awards and wrote," A plush and fabulous expression of variety and provenance with well-integrated alcohol, tannin and acidity. Will continue for several years and mellow. Be warned - one glass will be quickly followed by the next."
Wine Spectator, a publication notoriously stingy with effusive reviews gave this a 93 point review. It also was the second highest scoring 2018 Ribera del Duero they've reviewed (out of 52 wines).
"This concentrated, graceful red offers a thread of graphite and loamy earth that weaves through the blackberry, currant and anise notes, with details of espresso and spice carrying through the velvety finish. Drink now through 2036. 6,000 cases made, 500 cases imported."
