98 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "[$120 list] The 2016 Nit de Nin Mas d’en Caçador was produced with grapes from 78- to 113-year-old vines in the Mas d'en Caçador vineyard in Porrera. It's a blend of Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Peluda and Cariñena with some 5% white grapes. It fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts in a 3,200-liter oak vat and matured in a similar 2,700-liter oak vat. It has great balance and is ripe and Mediterranean, without any excess; it's incredibly elegant and has character. In a way, it makes me think of a classical Châteauneuf, with fine tannins and subtle minerality. 4,071 bottles and 60 magnums were filled in April 2019. (Aug 2019)"

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Nit De Nin Mas D'En Cacador comes from mostly Grenache yet includes small amounts of Carignan as well as some white varieties. It has an exotic, perfumed style in its red and blue fruits, orange blossom, graphite, and spring flower-driven aromas and flavors. Elegant, incredibly pure, and full-bodied, with beautiful tannins, this thrilling wine is going to evolve gracefully for 10-15 years. Drink: 2019-2034. (4/3/19)"
