Parker review

The 2008 Phinca Abejera is a blend of 40% Graciano, 40% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, and 10% Viura aged for 17 months in French oak. The bouquet conveys an earthy minerality along with attractive spice, floral, and black fruit aromas. On the palate it is slightly narrow with elevated acidity but plenty of ripe, savory fruit for balance. It lacks the pure hedonistic appeal of the Lali cuvee appealing more to the intellect than the senses. 92

Press

Stephen Tanzer: (40% each of tempranillo and graciano, with 10% garnacha and 10% viura): Glass-staining ruby. Captivating aromas of cherry, candied blackberry and blueberry, plus musky suggestions of dried flowers and minerals. Broad, dense and sweet, with excellent precision to the flavors of black and blue fruits and floral pastilles. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and outstanding persistence. 93
