12 months French oak
International Wine Cellar, 91 points. The Wine Advocate, 90 points.
Classical Wines from Spain
The Navarra DO continues its remarkable transition, often led by the Guelbenzu family. EVO has been one of their best value wines for years, and this blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Tempranillo remains an engaging blend of sun-baked and black fruits alongside crisper red fruits. Drink soon or in the next several years.
The wine is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with a complement of Tempranillo and Merlot. It has been aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
About the Winery
In 1851, the Guelbenzu family presented wine, olive oil and wheat at the First Universal Exposition in London’s Prince Albert Hall. Product quality was the family's aim from the inception of its business. In 2001, the family discovered and acquired a unique quaternary gravel deposit, a short way up the Queiles River Valley in the village of Vierlas. Emphasizing this unique terroir, the resulting wines are complex blends of red-grape varieties.
