"A nicely simple Rioja with subtle spices, berries, red plums and some oranges. Spicy and medium-bodied on the palate with medium acidity, round, soft tannins and a creamy, medium-long finish. Very approachable. Drink now."

"The 2020 vintage of Finca San Martín Crianza from Bodegas Torre de Oña is a touch less ripe than last year's lovely 2019 version, as this year the wine comes in at an even fourteen percent. The élevage of the wine is done in sixty percent new American oak casks and forty percent used French oak barrels. The wine offers up an expressive, fairly new oaky nose of raspberries, a fine array of Rioja spice tones, cigar wrapper, a lovely base of soil, woodsmoke and spicy new American oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and complex, with the first vestiges of Rioja silkiness on the attack, a lovely core of fruit, fine focus and grip, good balance and a long, fairly tannic finish. This is a lovely wine, which, to my palate, could be even better with a touch less new oak, as this would give the wine a chance to show off its velvety nature all the way through to the finish and not have to grapple with oak tannins. But, that said, it is still quite delicious and a fine value! 2024-2050."

"The 2020 Crianza Finca San Martín is 100% Tempranillo, sourced from Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa and aged 60% in new French oak and 40% in used barrels. Exhibiting a garnet color, the aromas showcase vanilla, cedar, sour cherry and cassis, complemented by an herbal layer. Indulgent, rich and fairly structured, the fine tannins contribute to a corset-like mouthfeel."

"The young and fruit-driven 2020 Finca San Martín is pure Tempranillo fermented in stainless steel and matured in new American (60%) and French (40%) oak barrels for 16 months. It's creamy and spicy, with ripe berry fruit, clean and modern, approachable and powerful with 14.5% alcohol, but it also has good freshness and acidity. 180,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2022."
