95 points James Suckling: "Attractive, sweetly aromatic, red-floral perfume with dried red cherries and some dried strawberries, too. Only hints of leather here. The palate has a beautifully fresh, succulent and elegantly focused feel with a long sleeve of dried-cherry flavor and gently nutty notes to close. Dry, long and mouthwatering finish. Drink now. (12/8/19)"

94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Not made every year - there will be none between 2013 and 2017 - this stylish, mature, low alcohol rosado comes from the Tondonia vineyard and is a blend of mostly Garnacha with Viura and Tempranillo. Mature, complex and layered, it's a bronze-hued beauty with supple tannins and savoury, wild herb notes. 2019-24. (2019)"

94 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Light bright amber-hued orange. Mineral- and spice-accented red currant and cherry scents, joined by building herb and floral nuances. Shows noteworthy depth as well as energy to the bitter cherry, succulent herb, spicecake and blood orange flavors, which turn sweeter as the wine stretches out. Finishes extremely long and chewy, with resonating floral and red fruit character and a lingering suggestion of fennel. Aged for four years in neutral American oak barrels and racked twice a year. Drink: 2019-2026. (Aug 2019)"

93+ points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The unique and personal 2009 Viña Tondonia Rosado Gran Reserva is a little darker than the 2008 I tasted next to it. It also feels a little riper and nuttier, with some traces of ripe apricots and flowers. It's also fuller and not as sharp as the 2008 and has a dry, chalky/stony palate. These are unique wines that develop in bottle for a long time. 14,200 bottles were filled in April 2015. Drink: 2019-2026. (Jun 2019)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "The deep, rusty color announces that this is not a typical rosé. Distinctive, offering tangy acidity and light, firm tannins that frame the rich texture, giving this plenty of structure for food. Orange peel, tarragon, iodine and beeswax notes frame the dried cherry and tangerine flavors. Unique. Garnacho, Tempranillo and Viura. Drink now through 2029. 1,166 cases made. (3/31/20)"
