93 points Peñín Guide: "(garnacha) Colour: deep cherry, garnet rim. Nose: varietal, balsamic herbs, ripe fruit, dry stone. Palate: flavourful, good structure, complex. (2012)"

90 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): "[$14 list] The 2009 Las Rocas is 100% Garnacha sourced from 80-year-old vines from the DO of Calatayud with 25% of the wine aged in wood. It is a forward, savory, ripe, succulent offering that should prove to be a crowd-pleaser. It is an outstanding value that will deliver enjoyment over the next 5 years. (Jun 2011)"

90 points and '100 Best Buys of 2013,' Wine & Spirits: "[$14 list] The mix of almond, dried fruit and earth notes give a certain air of mystery to the aroma of this wine. The palate is taut, with a fine layer of tannins and firm acidity that padlocks the flavors for now. Give it time in a decanter to open and serve with charcuterie. (Feb 2013)"
