Robert Parker 92 Points "I sampled the unbottled 2017 reds, including the 2017 AN, the flagship bottling here. It's mostly Callet with some Mantonegro and Fogoneu found in the small vineyards and comes from a dry, early and low-yielding year. The wine I tasted was a sample of the final blend that was taken from barrel and assembled some ten days before I tasted it. I found plenty of luxurious oak aromas—smoke, spices, dark chocolate and toast—with something creamy and a core of ripe berry fruit. The palate was voluptuous and juicy, with creamy and smoky notes, very oaky, in need of some time in bottle. But I think this will always remain oaky. This is a great commercial red that will please many, but I find that the identity of the place and varieties gets lost in all that new oak."
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points "Lightly herbal berry aromas are spicy and heavy with oaky barrel notes. A full, ripe and creamy palate offers medicinal berry and oak flavors that are particular to this Callet-led blend from Mallorca. A lasting finish does not fade for at least a minute. Drink through 2025."
Wine Spectator 91 Points "This aromatic red shows floral, smoky and herbal notes that frame ripe flavors of dried cherry and raspberry preserves. Light tannins and firm acidity keep this focused. Distinctive."
