"The 2.5 hectares of north- and west-facing terraces planted with old vines produced the 2016 As Caborcas, a wine of unusual intensity, elegance and balance in 2016. The cooler year seems to have worked wonders for the reds here, and the wine is expressive and open, floral and aromatic, developing nuances of moss and fern, with a textured palate where the tannins have the granite mark of stony austerity that is then coated by the glycerin and the fruit, making a wine that is both elegant and powerful, with a very Galician feeling to it. 2,619 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017. Drink: 2019-2029. 96 points

Telmo Rodríguez's wines from Valdeorras keep improving, especially the ones coming from new plantings, as the vineyards settle and the plants get better balanced. The 2015 reds are ripe and powerful, a touch more Mediterranean than 2014. This time the As Caborcas outshone the O Diviso."
