The Wine Advocate 86 pts - Jay Miller
The 2009 Protocolo Tinto is 100% Tempranillo aged for 3 months in seasoned American oak. Purple-colored, it displays a nose reminiscent of Beaujolais. Fruity and fresh on the palate, the finish has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 2 years.

Wine Enthusiast 89 pts - Michael Schachner
One of the best deals in Spanish red wine you're likely to find. Protocolo has always delivered value but this vintage sets a new high standard for $7 Tempranillo. It's deep, ripe and minty on the nose, with berry power foretelling a pure, lush palate that's packed with berry flavors and light herbal shadings. Impressive and super tasty, especially given the price. #2 in Wine Enthusiasts Top 100 Best Buys of 2011.

Description:
Color: Ruby red with violet hues, clean and very brilliant. Aroma: Fruity, raspberry, red fruits; very characteristic of the variety. Light notes of toast and spice. In Mouth: Medium-bodied, good equilibrium of tannins and acidity. Finishing with notes of raspberry, toast and light notes of wood.
