Alvaro Palacios 'Les Terasses' Garnacha Samsó 2014
Fluent, long, delicate and lovely; steely firmness underpins the fruit, reflecting schisty soil. Ashy, deep and dark with a cherry blossom lift and a dash of orange juice.
2014 is a marvellous package of depth and body with fine-ness aplenty. The generosity appeals immediately; the fine natural structure will reward extended cellaring.
Wine Spectator – Graceful and harmonious, this red shows good depth, balancing juicy cherry and berry flavors with notes of vanilla, mountain herb and mineral. Light tannins and juicy acidity impart focus. Drink now through 2022. 12,000 cases made.
