Garnatxa Blanca

René Barbier i Sara Perez

Dido Montsant Macabeu-Garnatxa Cartoixa Blend 2017

Nose has light yeasted bread, plum skin, vanilla bean, bruised yellow apple, (minor) cider vinegar, do much going on here, wow.

Palate has ripe plum flesh, candle wax, ripe pear, candied lemon, light oaky/vanilla notes on the long finish.

Very weighty wine, a white that could be paired with a roasted pork dish!

Terra Blanca

Arch Terrace Red Mountain Cabernet Franc

WA Cab Franc. Might be my first. Smells strange and lovely. Wet earth, aka mud, and dark fruits. Hints of smoke and meats. Even smoked meats. Flavors are robust and extracted. Very full. Nice deepness to the fruit and smoke flavors. This is New World Bordeaux type wine at its best. — 14 days ago

Lafou El Sender Terra Alta Garnatxa Negra Syrah 2017

This is a Terra Alta wine made of garnatxa and Shiraz, very autoctonous. It has spent 6 months in the barrel. Let’say it is a young one in the best moment of its life! Young and grown up! It reminds a Beaujolais with strong personality!! — 10 days ago
