97 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The Nit de Nin family has grown with the addition of a new vineyard. The wine produced since 2003 comes from Mas d'en Caçador—this was always named on the label, but it is now also specified in the wine name to distinguish between the new vineyard. The 2015 Nit de Nin Mas d’en Caçador comes from the vineyard mentioned in the name, a famous place in Porrera planted with old vines of Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Peluda and Cariñena. It fermented in an oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in a similar vat for 18 months. It's heady and ripe, exuberant and very open, a hedonistic, round and lush wine. The palate reveals very fine tannins and great harmony. 4,774 bottles and some larger formats were filled in April 2017. Drink: 2018-2025. (Apr 2018)"

95 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): "Saturated violet. Mineral-tinged dark fruit liqueur, incense and exotic spice aromas are complemented by suggestions of mocha, licorice and candied flowers. Broad and weighty on the palate, showing impressive depth to sweet, spice-inflected blackberry, cherry-vanilla, spicecake and violet pastille flavors. The mineral and floral qualities echo emphatically on an impressively persistent finish that leaves sappy black and blue fruit notes behind. Drink: 2023-2033. (Mar 2021)"

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Mas d’En Caçador is one of the highest vineyards in Priorat, seven acres of black soil, rich in slate, at an altitude of more than 2,100 feet in the mountains of Porrera. Ester Nin, partner in Nin-Ortiz, believes that some of these vines are more than 100 years old. The cool north-facing orientation of the slope gives a delicious freshness to the fruit, with initial floral and mineral scents that gain more prominence in the flavor. The slate shows strongly in the firm and elegant tannins, the wine medium in body, but with great depth. (Oct 2017)"
