Robert Parker: 92
The most expensive and exclusive in the lineup is the 2012 Petit Verdot, a rare varietal produced in a winery designed to work without pumps, fermented with natural yeast with malolactic and 18 months aging in new French barriques. Petit Verdot is not an easy grape, and it does not ripen properly every year, but it did in 2012. It does have the roasted, black fruit aromas, hints of graphite and peat, and black aromas commonly associated with the grape. The palate is full-bodied with glossy tannins, good volume and balancing acidity. It has stuffing, balance and acidity to improve in bottle. Six barrels produced wine to fill 1,500 bottles and a handful of magnums in June 2015.

Abadía Retuerta belongs to the chemical multinational Novartis. Located just outside the limits of the Ribera del Duero appellation, they have 180 hectares of vineyards planted between 1991 and 1994 in the village of Sardón de Duero, where the hidden radar almost guarantees a speeding ticket to any foreign wine lover (read non-local rather) driving through the N-122 road that connects some of the most renowned names of the Duero wine. 
2012 is a very good vintage here, combining the elegance of 2010 and the power of 2009. These are modern, concentrated wines in search of more elegance and better integration of the wood, as the vineyards mature and there is more wine in the bottle and less oak.

Wine Spectator: 89
This inky red offers dark flavors of blueberry, blackberry and licorice, with chewy tannins and crisp acidity providing a tight, firm structure. A bit austere, but focused. Best from 2016 through 2022. 125 cases made. –TM
