Predicador was a wine that was born as a minor wine at a very specific moment in time, and many people (including yours truly) had not quite realized it has grown into an adult, proper Rioja red. The 2014 Predicador I tasted had only been bottled for two weeks and was a little dizzy. But if you wait or can read between the lines, it's terribly perfumed and intoxicating, with penetrating aromas of macerated cherries and very decayed violets, a little decadent. The palate is silky, with superb tannins and great balance. This is among the best vintages ever released since the initial 2004.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
JS A fresh and mineral nose with cherries, currants and blueberries. Full body, compact and firm tannins and a medium finish. Shows some complexity and plenty of pure fruit character.?
