Description

Tim Atkin – 94 points 

Orbén is more modern in style than its sister winery, Izadi. This pure Tempranillo from a vineyard at (distinctly marginal) 700 metres is aged in 50% new French barrels and is deeply coloured, savoury and plush with bright, aromatic berry fruit, well-handled oak and the freshness you’d expect from such a site. 2020-30. Alcohol: 14.5%

Wine Spectator – 93 points 
This big red has a plush texture that wraps around muscular tannins. Plum and currant flavors mingle with licorice, cola and forest floor notes, with balsamic acidity for freshness. A burly wine, but harmonious. Best from 2020 through 2035.
