Les Terrasses Alvaro Palacios Alvaro Palacios Espanha Priorato Tinto 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The most fashionable vineyards in Spain are located on steep Catalan terracesof Priorat, just inland from Taragonna and Barcelona. The Terraces is made from65% Cariñena and 35% Garnacha; it is. From start to finish it is anunbridled hedonistic experience, with black berries and black cherries to thefore, then hints of aniseed and spice..... a wonderful but completemouth-feel and a deeply satisfying texture. (Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

Very fruity with aromas of dark chocolate and violet. Young but very well balanced.

Very powerful wine, believe it still needs a few years (tasted 2006 as of June 2009). Lots of fruit, yet some structure and tannins, finish a bit short... probably should have decanted it.

Im Glas zeigt er ein wunderschönes Purpurrot mit rubinroten Reflexen. In der Nase betörende Aromen nach Kirschen, Brombeeren und Waldbeeren, unterlegt von einer feinen Würznote. Die köperreiche Struktur füllt den Mund aus und die Tannine sind perfekt eingebettet. Ein Wein mit bestem Potential.
