Cellar/Tasting Notes
In 2007, Alvaro changed the sources of fruit for the Les Terrasses cuvee to only old vines or Velles Vinyes in Catalan. In doing so, he reduced the production of this wine by almost a 3rd and increased the quality a great deal. The wine comes from mostly estate vineyards with some purchased fruit from select lots of old vine Garnacha. Starting in 2011 the blend has changed to only indigenous varietals - Garnacha and Samso. Vineyard yields are low at 10-25 hL/hA.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92
"Glass-staining ruby. Exotically perfumed aromas of dark fruit compote, smoky Indian spices and licorice, with a building floral quality. Coats the palate with juicy blackberry and mulberry flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. Quite rich but manages to remaing energetic, finishing with sappy dark berry flavors and excellent persistence."
Wine Spectator (WS): 93
"A light texture carries racy, intense flavors in this expressive red, with bright cherry, licorice, mineral, garrigue and spice notes mingling over light tannins and buoyed by lively acidity. Balanced, focused and elegant, with a lingering finish."
