Parker: Hornillos Ballesteros is a small winery located in the town of Roa. They farm 40 ha of vineyard but select 15 ha for their own vines, the rest of the crop being sold off. The first young wine was in 2004. They have changed their philosophy using wood, reducing the new oak on the crianza and using larger barrels (225 l to 300 l).
The 2009 Mibal Crianza is raised in used French oak. It has a lifted bouquet of mulberry, dark plum, apricot and a touch of marmalade that intensifies with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, attacking entry. It is underpinned with a taut thread of acidity that leads to a linear, very focused black cherry and licorice finish that will need 12 months of coalesce. Fine. Drink 2014-2019
