Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

My review is on 2008 vintage of this wine.
Atteca is a wine of dark ruby color that improves with aerating. Lovely ripe dark fruit with blueberry tones and spices. Rich, almost sweet flavors of layered fruit is beautifully composed and balanced. Long satisfying finish.

This old vines Garnacha can be enjoyed right now but will improve with 1-2 years in the bottle. This wine can proudly compete with rich red wines from Rhone or California, in much higher price category. Atteca is an excellent value!
