90 Points, Wine Advocate - The Spanglish-sounding 2013 El Miracle by Mariscal is named after the barrels designed by Valencian artist Javier Mariscal, that appear on the label. Against all odds, it is 100% Garnacha Tintorera matured for eight months in second-use French oak barrels. The wine is surprisingly aromatic with notes of red cherries, not as dark as you'd expect from a grape that has so much coloring matter with perhaps some herbal hints that add freshness. The palate is medium-bodied, with dusty tannins and good acidity, slightly rustic but with character and in need of food. A nice Garnacha Tintorera at very good price.
Bright cherry with a deep robe and very luminous purple edge. It has an intense bouquet, an expressive and fragrant nose, dominant red fruit wrapped in smoky notes and mineral flavours. The nose is tamed by the wood, with hints of cedar. Smooth on the palate, good acidity and meaty, defined tannins that bring to mind ripe plums and black olives, with a long berry-laden finish. A fine wine with a Mediterranean character.
