Holly Emmerson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I didn't have the 2007 vintage, but the 2010 vintage was GREAT! Nice reddish/brown in colour, dark fruit like black cherries and dried prune on the nose. On the palate, lots of dried prune, raisins mixed with dark cherry. Very rich in flavour and not a lot of tannins. Silky, soft and full of flavour.

Dinner party with neighbors.
Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine of dark ruby color 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 wine 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!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
