Heather Wall rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Outstanding! Tannins, alcohol, acidity and robust flavours in a happy marriage. Dried strawberry, dark cherry, plum,violet,cola,vanilla,nutmeg with leather, smoke and mint on the long elegant finish. This Priorat is drinking beautifully now could easily cellar over the next 7 years+. Hands down one of the most beautiful wines I have enjoyed in recent memory.
Pair with grilled lamb burger with blue cheese, spicy lamb sausage, or on it's own!
Tasted Apr. 2014
Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Ripened to perfection the grapes Garnacha and Carinen combine here to create an elegant and complex wine with flavours of black plum, dark cherry, dried strawberry, mint, baking spices, over layers of savoury floral and dried tobacco. The well-integrated tannins create body and that carries the flavours through on the long, refreshing, cohesive finish.
Drink now, or cellar until 2020.
Pair with duck confit, Blue cheese, rich grilled meats, or spiced sausages.
Date tasted: April 2014.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
