immediate nose of burnt popcorn, an earthiness complete with rustic fruit, dried tea leaves and some tar. More fruit forward on the palate, mixed with dark chocolate, spice, and earth, and a nice complexity on the finish. Would be amazing with a hearty dinner

Sweet syrupy nose - slightly gamey. Rich and full-bodied with lots of acidity. Black cherries and a hint of eucalyptus dominate. Long acidic finish and a fair amount of complexity. Very enjoyable, but the nose promised more than it delivered.

a deep dark blend of black cherries and currants with some spice at the beginning, a mineral finish drawn out and medium tannins.

Terra alta reds...have come a long way! They still have a long way too come...Oriel is a large importer in the US and they tend to just slap a label on things...This wine is cheap, but is worth tasting...

Starts our simple, but after a few sips the flavor turns very strong. Interesting aromas and flavors of cherries. Another good Spanish wine to add to my list.


Winemaker's Notes:

A complex Garnacha, tasting of cherry and raspberry with a refreshing acidity, from old vines grown on dense slate soils on terraced hills southwest of Barcelona. Setena is the Catalan word for one-seventh—the amount of the harvest that farmers in ancient Spain paid landowners for the right to work the land.
