96-98 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The more backward of the 2021s was the 2021 Finca Dofí, which was very primary and smelled almost like the fermentation vessels, and it took time in the glass to open up. The blend is higher in Garnacha and they couldn't use the Picapoll, as it didn't work well that cool year, so it's 90% Garnacha, 9% Cariñena and 1% white grapes. It achieved 14.5% alcohol but kept better freshness than in 2020, a constant in the 2021 wines. Very promising. They expect 24,000 bottles. It should be bottled around April 2023. (9/30/22)"

95 points Wine Spectator: "A silky weightlessness and overall sense of finesse belies the pinpoint focus and tension on display in this vibrant red. A frame of taut, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity drive this wine's vervy energy while providing a well-meshed, sculpted frame. Offers aromas and flavors of crushed raspberry, Earl Grey tea leaf and tar, plus hints of rose hip, vanilla and graphite that echo on and on through the long finish. Garnacha and Samsó. Best from 2026 through 2040. (2/28/24)"
