Vaza Tempranillo 2012

FEATURED
"The tart cherry and leafy flavors are fresh and vibrant in this supple, racy red. Smoke and licorice notes add interest. Light and fresh."
- Wine Spectator, November 2014

FEATURED
"This young Tempranillo is very fruity and fresh, providing pure red berries on an easy drinking palate. Could be served lightly chilled to accompany a hot summer day's lunch."
- International Wine Review, July 2014

Vaza Cosecha 2009

FEATURED
"Clean, fresh aromas of plum, raspberry and cherry give this wine a red-fruited personality. The mouthfeel supplies grip and mild tannic clamp, while flavors of plum and berry come with a touch of resiny oak. This crianza is textured and solid on the finish, but still fresh."

Vaza Cosecha 2008

GOLD MEDAL
- San Francisco International Wine Competition 2012

Vaza Cosecha 2006

WINE of the WEEK
"Unoaked and bright, this 90% Tempranillo is exactly the kind of wine I referred to in the lead article, with fresh berries, and a clean and crisp finish. It has perfect flavors and great affinity for a wide variety of foods. There's not much complexity in this lighter-bodied wine, just the sheer joy of unadulterated fruit! Imported by the Ferrer family which owns Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma County."

"Beefy red chili wants a fruity, low-tannin wine like the 2011 VAZA Crianza."
- Cooking Light, October 2015

87 POINTS
"Earth, leather, herb and berry aromas set up a firm palate and gripping structure. The midpalate is focused on red fruit and light oak tones, while the finish is crisp, fresh and zesty."
- Wine Enthusiast, February 2015

Vaza Crianza 2010

Vaza Crianza 2009

"This is roasted, savory and spicy up front, with solid berry aromas. It feels crisp and fresh, with a blend of cherry, strawberry and herb flavors. It's spicy, lively, fresh and clean on the finish."
