Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Bam. This wine shows why Mencia is one of the most exciting and undervalued varietals in the wine world today. I've always been of the mind that Mencia, like Grenache, should not face the daunting challenge of sleeping too long in new oak. Palacios shares the same vision. Sleek, sexy aromas and flavours of black currants, licorice, sassafras, and a hint of marshmallow root. Exquisite minerality, smooth tannins. Incredible harmony present in this wine. I'm 92 points on this. (
