I don’t understand why the average rating from everyone else is 8.7? I am tasting the latest vintage 2019 three months after bottling and I think it’s delicious. Which is hard for me to say because Herencia Altes is competition for my wines and they sell their entry level wines at prices so low that it’s absolutely impossible to turn a profit or compete with them. This wine has been aged in concrete semi-oval tanks on lees for 2 months with Battonage and then 6 months without the lees. On the nose it has medium(+) aromas and flavours and it almost seems like it has been fermented in oak. Medium(+) body, the alcohol is high 14% and while it is fairly supported and balanced by the ripe and expressive citrus fruit and the medium acidity, the alcohol lingers on and warms your chest. The finish is medium(+) and elegant. #terraalta #spain #garnachablanca #grenacheblanc — 7 days ago
Dark purple with very faint bricking on the edge. Nose is very generous, deep, black fruited supported by oak. Reminds me of Rocca di Frassinello Le Sughere. Color + nose suggest extracted and bold wine but palate is suprisignly medium bodied with firm structure and nice fruit acid balance. One could take this is a top class Cru Bourgeois. Only slightly too prominent tannins distract on a othervice highly enjoyable taste. This needs food and is still very primary at age 7. I take this will be at it's best around 3-5 years from now. Great wine! — 19 days ago

2018. Buy a case. Two or three if you’re worried about the election. This wine is as inviting as the winemaker who made it (assuming a Cat). Unabashed pepper, firm oak, biting tannin, brought to bear by the love of grap. Loving it! — 21 days ago
A blend of 77% Cab Sauv, 13% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 3% Petite Sirah & 1% Cab Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of rich ripe berry fruits, cedar and earthy herb spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum, with cacao, tobacco and oaky notes. Nice balance, soft chewy tannins, long finish ending with creamy vanilla spice and cedar character. Nice value! — 20 days ago
This Western Australian Frankland River Cabernet is a very good example of new offerings from non Cabernet regions
Well worth a detour to try something different — 14 days ago
This 8 year old Chianti Classico is drinking very nicely now.
Showing red and blue fruits with earth, vegetables, tar, herbs, oak, spices, light vanilla, peppercorn and wet leaves.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Nice length on the finish with round tannins.
Spicy and interesting to drink by itself.
Well balanced with nice complexity and nice structure.
Needs an hour to open up properly and show off.
Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
100% Sangiovese grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 24 months. Kosher.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
