The Argentine branch of this multinational collection of wineries applies high-tech methods to high-quality fruit, a large percentage of which is from very old vines. The wines are deeply colored, dense and chewy, with a sizable new oak component and considerable tannic clout. The B Crux is a blend that features a sizable percentage of Tempranillo.

Robert Parker Review:
This is dark and packed with a large core of hoisin sauce, Port reduction, bittersweet cocoa, raspberry ganache and charcoal that manages to stay fleshy and driven through the long, structured finish. Offers youthful impact now, but really built for cellaringżunlike most of its peers, which offer vivid fruit right out of the gate. Best from 2009 through 2015. 1,000 cases made. –JM

Wine Spectator Review:
The 2004 B Crux is a blend of 50% Tempranillo, 40% Malbec, and 10% Merlot aged for 12 months in 50% new French and American oak. Dark ruby-colored, it reveals a fragrant bouquet of cedar, violets, blackberry, black raspberry and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate it has layers of savory fruit, cinnamon, and chocolate, good balance, excellent concentration, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2018.

O. Fournier’s first vintage was 2001. The winery, which resembles a flying saucer, was completed in 2006. It contains a superb restaurant which is a must-stop for wine country travelers. All of the O. Fournier white wines are unoaked. The Urban Eco line encompasses some remarkable values, all priced at $10 or less.

Steve Tanzer's Review:
Bright ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate, complemented by sexy oak spices. Highly concentrated flavors of dark berries, bitter chocolate and spices show surprising cut and verve. Finishes with substantial broad, fine-grained tannins.

Wine maker notes
Priorat, Jumilla, Toro, Rioja, and Ribera del Duero are among the most noble growing regions on the Iberian Peninsula and purposely chosen for the second release of our Spanish red wine. Super concentrated fruit from old vines with low yields are accented with a judicious oak program for a balanced and distinctive wine.
