92 points James Suckling: "Smoky elements with a wealth of dark rich plum fruits. The freshness is impressive for the nearly ten years of age here. This wine has a lot to offer. The palate has dense tannins but it is very focused. Impressive. Drink now. (7/24/17)"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "[$145 list] Alejandro Fernández makes Millenium from vines he planted in the late 1960s and early ’70s at Viña Alta, at 2,600 feet in elevation. A blend of fruit from two parcels, one on slopes, the other more sheltered, it’s a staunchly traditional Ribera del Duero. The fresh notes in the fruit are more black currant than blackberry, and there’s a coolness in the acidity that keeps the wine lively despite the oxidative notes of barrel aging. Josh Lit of Gotham Bar & Grill in NYC described it as 'an old-school rustic style.' The lasting richness of the juicy, bold fruit makes it all the more impressive in that style. (Jun 2019)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "[$145 list] This expressive red offers cherry, strawberry and vanilla flavors, fresh and sweet, mingling with tobacco, tea and spice notes. Features a supple texture, but the underlying tannins are firm. Lively, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2022. 30 cases imported. (12/31/17)"
