Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – 91
"The 2011 Jaen was aged in 30% new French oak for 18 months. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Lovely, this is fresh, filled with fruit and nicely supported by the structure too. The velvety texture remains a selling point while it has acquired a little complexity. This is a nice back-to-back performance with the 2012 this issue, but I'd say this is more expressive of the grape as well as better structured. In this big vintage, it also manages to retain some elegance and balance. It will continue aging well for several years, likely more than indicated, but let's take that in stages. The price of this library wine merely reflects the latest release price."
