Josh Raynolds of Vinous Media on his article From Central Spain : Tempranillo and Beyond , reviews two wines of Bodegas Hnos. Pérez Pascuas :

EL PEDROSAL 2013

91 Points

“Aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak barriques. Assertive aromas of dark berries and peppery spices, with hints of  vanilla and potpurri in the background. A suave and appealingly sweet midweight that features sappy, smoke-tinged BlackBerry and cherry compote flavors  accented by White pepper and anise. Energetic and smooth on the long, seamless finish, which leaves a hint of candied licorice behind”

 

VIÑA PEDROSA CRIANZA 2011.

92 Points

“Aged for 18 months in new and used French oak barrique … Sexy, oak-spiced cherry and dark berry scents are complemented by mocha, candied licorice and vanilla, wiht a peppery element  adding lift. Smooth, warm and seamless on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruti flavor that become spicier as the wine opens up. Lush yet energetic, with strong closing thrust and supple tannins building slowly and adding gentle rip.”
