94 points James Suckling: "Blackberry, bark and wet-earth aromas follow through to a medium body with firm, lightly chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish with hints of chocolate, and vanilla to the dark fruit. Tempranillo. (9/25/21)"

93 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Glistening ruby. Expansive red and blue fruit, pipe tobacco, potpourri and baking spice aromas, with vanilla and smoky mineral notes slowly emerging. Sappy and gently chewy on the palate, offering spice-accented black raspberry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Shows sharp focus and repeating florality on the long, subtly tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of candied blue fruits. Drink 2024-2034. (Apr 2021)"

92 points Tim Atkin, MW: "(14%). Slightly riper and higher in alcohol than most vintages of CVNE's Gran Reserva, reflecting the warm vintage conditions, this is an ageworthy blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo framed by French and American oak. Youthful and concentrated with black fruit, fresh acidity and structured tannins. 2024-27. (2021)"

92 points Falstaff (4/23/21).
