Montsant, Tarragona

Terroir Sense Fronteres

Vèrtebra Montsant Garnacha 2015

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.1

Beautiful perfume. Crushed lavender cherries and sandalwood. Hints of stems. Watered down on the palate. 13% #garnacha from #montsant? = water. Ironic name and label Terroirs without frontiers but with a shield with a Catalan flag? — a month ago

Las Voltas Rancio

Tarragona Red Blend 1987

Reputedly a centenarian when bottled in 1937. Like a cross between an orange wine and an amontillado— plenty of power but very refined and, well, probably fading just a bit now. Color glowing golden brown with green glints. Unclear if this started life as a red or white. — 5 days ago

Laurona

Montsant Garnacha Blend 2003

JKT
9.1

Still going strong with enticing nose of sweet red fruits and Rose floral notes. Silky texture balanced palate with just a hint of bite going into finish. Interesting blend of 50/15/25/10 Grenache Syrah Merlot Cab and a nice new old world mix. RP92 but incorrect varietal mix. WS Top 100 ‘06. — a month ago

Celler Piñol

Mather Teresina Seleccion de Vinas Viejas Terra Alta Red Blend 2012

Had this a few yrs ago, aged well. Mather Teresina, flagship wine of Celler Vinos Piñol, grapes grown in high elevation region of Terra Alta. Nearly extinct Morenillo grape is indigenous to the area & makes Mather Teresina a unique wine, a blend of 50% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena & 20% Morenillo. Nice aromas of berries & sweet spice. On the palate cherry flavors with vanilla spice adding black pepper notes on smooth fine tannins. Long finish ending with sweet fruit tones & earthy character. Nice! — a day ago
