Robert Parker: „Quite a different animal, the 2013 Valtosca is pure Syrah from vines planted between 1994 and 2001 on chalky soils. It is fermented in cement with indigenous yeasts and aged for 12 months in 500-liter oak barrels. It shows brighter and less opaque than the 2012 and the nose also shows more subtlety, more Northern Rhône if you like, with violets and hints of smoke. It is still young and perhaps still suffering a little from the recent bottling (October 2014, a couple of months before my tasting). In this vintage the Syrah had a much longer growing cycle and was harvested later than ever in this estate. The slow and long ripening surely helped develop more subtle flavors and more complexity. There is also a big difference in the tannin quality compared to the 2012. This 2013 is velvety and elegant with good balance and freshness too, while the 2012 feels more rustic and a little harsh. Again, this could be the best Valtosca. 42,000 bottles were filled in October 2014. 2013 is a great vintage for Casa Castillo. While 2012 was very dry with some rain during the harvest, for José María Vicente it’s still better than 2011 but clearly below 2010 and 2013 which he favors as his best recent vintages. I agree completely. Talking to him he was quite disappointed with the Jumilla appellation and some decision to allow five-liter bag-in-box for appellation wines and might take his single-vineyard wines out of the appellation. Not only great, but very affordable wines.“
