Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"The 2012 Rompecabezas, Favia's Rhone blend, brings together the dark fleshiness of Mourvedre and Syrah with aromatic top notes of Grenache. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries and tobacco are all given an extra dimension of sheen from the silky tannins. Layered and open-knit, the 2012 has plenty of radiance, not to mention considerable near and medium-term appeal."

Wine Spectator:

"A bit rustic, this offers plenty of moving parts, from rich, earthy blackberry flavors to cedar, spice and tobacco leaf hints, ending with gripping tannins. New elements emerge with every sip. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2026."
