93 pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate (Gutierrez)
Produced with Listán Negro from different vineyards, altitudes and soils, the 2018 Artífice Tinto fermented mostly in stainless steel with some stems, thanks to the new destemmer he bought. The wine matured separately in oak barrels and foudres for 10 to 11 months and then was blended together and bottled. It has a meaty note on the nose, quite different from the majority of Listán Negro wines from the island, with a smoky/flinty touch. It's juicy and very pleasant, with a soft texture. With time in the glass, notes of dried petals and subtle pumice stone emerge, along with a peppery twist and volcanic undertones. It has bright flavors and very good freshness, tasty, spicy and a little herbal with nuances that Pérez attributes to the use of the stems. It's only stems... but I like it!
