92 Points James Suckling
This smells really jammy with so much cherry and berry character. Some raspberries, too. Yet, on the palate it is full and linear with dusty tannins and a fresh finish. White pepper and spice on the finish. Very contrastive and fun to drink From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Ternario 1 is pure Garnacha Tintorera from the only trellised vineyard they have, planted ungrafted 25 years ago at 800 meters in altitude. The wine has 12.8% alcohol and good freshness. It fermented with some full clusters and matured in 20,000-liter oak vats and concrete for seven months. This is a little more austere than the Calizo, spicy and less forward, nuanced and with complexity but without the immediate fruit of the Calizo. There is more concentration here and more structure; the tannins are chalky and the texture serious, and the finish is long and dry. It looks like 2019 is going to be a pleasant and approachable year. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in late June 2020.
