96/100 Wineanorak.com "Sweet, spicy, warm elegant nose with cherry fruit, herbs and complex woody notes. Very attractive with a citrus peel character. The palate is dense, elegant and spicy with lovely bright berry fruits (still!) and warm spiciness. Lots of life left in this wine which has aged beautifully. Elegant and expressive".
97/100 Cellartracker: "Amplio, ordenado, discreto, lleno de sensaciones de extra madurez (con un apunte de dulcedumbre) pero sin perder el frescor y esa vivacidad chispeante tan propia de los viejos Paternina. Los taninos son de lujo y deja una picante acidez que no desaparece de la boca durante horas. Imposible decir que se trata de un vino camino de los 100 años. No dudamos que los cumplirá sobrado de fuerza".
95/100 Cellartracker "Faded color. bricking. Nice Pale Red color. On pour I knew we were in business. This is remarkable in that, while a touch faded, it is a fade that illuminates so many fine details of strawberry, citrus peel, clove, mushroom and a touch of smoke. What a treat to taste a wine of this age and showing so well".
94/100 Cellartracker "Quite firm on the nose, open and developed. Vibrant nose in a way Burgundian in complexity and although well evolved and matured the fruit was ever present. Similarly on the palate, very healthy vibrant wine and could easily last another 10 years if kept well. A great joy!".
