96 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The single-vineyard 2020 Finca Dofí comes from the 14 hectares of vines planted across three parajes (lieu-dits) in Gratallops, a blend of 83% Garnacha, 12% Cariñena, 4% Picapoll—a grape with low sugar and high acidity (good for climate change) that he regrafted some four years ago—and 1% white grapes: Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo, all fermented in oak vats with 10% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in large oak barrels (bocoyes and foudres) for 15 months. It has good ripeness, 14.5% alcohol and a soft texture with nice balance, good freshness and fine tannins... bottled in May 2022. Drink: 2023-2030. (9/30/22)"

96 points Sarah Jane Evans, MW (Decanter): "At 16ha Dofí makes a big vineyard area for Priorat. This is a vivacious wine with red fruit and lovely aromas of velvety red roses. Vividly fresh palate, with wild herbs overlaying the resounding dark fruits. A long firm finish, brisk and determined, with a slight stony echo. A clue to the freshness is the 4% of Picapoll, the local white grape, in the blend for the first time. 21,060 bottles produced (usually 32,000). Drinking window: 2023-2032. (Jul 2021)"

96 points/'Podium Award,' Peñín Guide to Spanish Wine: "Bright cherry, light cherry. Red berry notes, neat, expressive, elegant.Fresh, fruity, flavourful, taut, easy to drink, long.

95 points James Suckling: "What a charming nose, with scented blueberries, crushed violets, red berries, wild herbs and a hint of dark olive. Juicy and pristinely dry and honest on the medium-to full-bodied palate, rounded by ultra-fine tannins, which are silky and powdery. Quite effortless and naturally long. Drink now or hold. (9/9/22)"
