Tasting notes, Robert Parker 93 points

The 2016 El Puntido is produced from the vineyard planted around the winery that names the wine, a large 25 hectare plot of Tempranillo. Cropped from a cold and wet vintage, it has a floral character not often seen in these wines. It's amazing to see how well some of the wines from such a challenging vintage are turning out, with purity and freshness, keeping the identity but with a perfume that is not that common. Honestly, I prefer this to the warmer and riper years.
