Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There are two whites and two reds from the La Emperatriz estate, a first and second wine in the Bordeaux style. The second red is the 2017 El Jardín de la Emperatriz Tinto, and this name will also be used for the white. They lowered the yields and decided to assemble a number of varieties, so this is 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha, 2% Graciano, 2% Viura and 1% Maturana Tinta. It's a serious and straight red fermented in stainless steel and matured in American and French oak barrels for 12 months. It has a clean, classical profile, with notes of ripe fruit and spicy oak and a medium-bodied palate with good entry and very fine tannins. 142,000 bottles and 8,000 magnums. It was bottled in March 2019.
