Buy Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos
Wine Advocate 93 points - One of my sure values, I thought the 2011 Petalos could not be surpassed so I opened a bottle next to the 2012 Petalos del Bierzo, and I was wrong. The 2012 is extremely aromatic, with flowery aromas of violets, lilies and roses, really fresh, with notes of red fruit (acid strawberries), no traces of oak whatsoever, subtle, really Burgundian with hints of blood oranges, denoting freshness. The medium-bodied palate is extremely balanced, elegant, round, with volume and incredible freshness. For a young, entry-level wine there is incredible complexity, developing notes of fennel and aromatic herbs, all of it very harmonious and subtle. For Ricardo there is a change to a cycle of Atlantic vintages (2012, 2013 and 2014 so far), but 2012 was a special vintage, shorter and dried, but at the same time fresh. This could very well be the best Petalos ever, and I cannot recommend enough. 310,000 bottles of this prodigious wine were produced, showing you can do quantity and quality at the same time. Bravo!  (Jan 2015)

Wine Spectator 90 points - Plump yet polished, this red offers plum, espresso, mineral and fresh herb flavors, supported by gentle tannins and fresh acidity. Subtle, harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2018.—T.M. (Jul 23 2014)
