92 points Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate): "[$32 list] This is the first vintage for a new entry-level red produced with Garnacha grapes from Dani Landi. The 2012 Uvas de la Ira, is his village wine from El Real de San Vicente blended from four different plots of Garnacha on granite soils. It has notes of red berries, citric hints and a dusty, earthy feeling provided by the granite soils. This 2012 shows more blood-orange aromas and is a little warmer, perhaps with notes of red and black cherries that ends with a dusty, mineral and slightly dry finish. Drink: 2014-2019." (Oct 2014)

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): "(100% garnacha; aged for a year in foudres): Vivid red. Lively and precise on the nose, displaying scents of fresh red berries, cherry, incense and Asian spices. Nervy, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Closes spicy and long, with subtle tannins providing shape and grip. (Sep 2014)"

91 points (17.5/20) Decanter: "Daniel Jiménez-Landi built his reputation on recuperating the old Garnacha south of Madrid. This wine, which translates as 'The Grapes of Wrath', he categorises as a village wine. Made in large vats for minimal oak influence, the purity and freshness of the fruit takes the lead. Long, refined finish. Drink: 2014-2017. Alcohol 14.5%. (Nov 2014)"
