#26 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses "Velles Vignes" has evolved into the essence of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Les Terrasses is sourced from many of steepest and oldest vineyards in the Priorat region.
"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."
"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."
