96 Points The Wine Advocate ... The 2018 Paixar is all violets, wild berries and raspberry leaves, a captivating, aromatic, floral and elegant expression of old-vine Mencía from the slate soils of Dragonte (Corullón) at 700 to 950 meters in altitude. It's very classic, but the wine has a very modern and clean profile, a change that perhaps started with the also cooler 2016 vintage. The wine is powerful and has energy and there is a level of sophistication, elegance and nuance not seen before. It's clean and floral and has depth. On the palate and the beautifully textured mouthfeel is where you see the greatness of this wine, which has all the ingredients to develop for a long time in bottle. I think this is the finest vintage of Paixar to date. Bravo!
