Vera Czerny rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Named by 3 mountain peaks bordering its vineyard, this wine will take you by surprise. Only half of the harvested grapes are aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. The rest is aged in stainless steel.

Intense aroma of dark cherries and light aroma of wild flowers. Beautiful, ruby red, with purple tones. On the palate I got a huge expression of ripe fruit, blackberries or dark cherries. It’s lightly dusted with cocoa and spice that makes you to longing for more.

Garnacha here is incredibly balanced with just right amount of acidity and silky tannins. It's worth to decant it or at least to leave the bottle open for an hour or so. It will slowly grow on your tongue, as you continue sip it. To me, this is a very seductive, clean, elegant and impressive wine with a really long finish.

Tres Picos is a wine of ridiculous value and low production.
