Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The just-bottled 2018 3 Miradas Vino de Pueblo is the village blend from Riofrío Alto and Cerro Macho from the much cooler 2018 vintage. There were notes of youth here, apples and green almonds, soft and tender, still quite fruit-driven and without the spicy and nutty notes that should come later with some time in bottle. However, 2018 is a much cooler year, and in years like that, the wine is more expressive of the soil and the effect of the flor yeast is milder when it comes to aromas and flavors. It's noticeable in the texture, where the wine was sharper to start with, but it has been sharpened more by the effect of the veil. 30,000 bottles produced.
