Han Sjakes (Dutch wine journalist) said of the 2010 vintage: "From cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and tempranillo, 12 months of aging, juicy and mouth filling, with fresh acidity and moderately strict tannin, cherry fruit, spiciness, plums and seductive sultry wood tones, chocolate and vanilla. Almost too sultry and ambitious, but very tasty."
Pieter Nijdam (wine journalist of the Dutch newspaper Telegraaf) of the 2010 vintage: "The more than excellent Noladós Crianza 2010 from subregio Cumbres del Guadalfeo is a full and yet fresh red wine based on cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and some tempranillo. Ripe cassis and cherries are framed by cedar and vanilla. Really super with Iberian pig with mustard salsa.'
"Vins Gastronomiques Controlés (Wine & Food Association) of the 2010 vintage:" Cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, tempranillo, expressive fragrance, fine composition, good juice, bite, good curl, hint of marzipan and dark chocolate, spicy underlay, much length, well suit for a wine arrangement, wild or meat dishes (15%) Score: 8.'
