Drinking Tonight - 2017 Les Terasses, Alvario Palacios
2017 Les Terasses, Alvario Palacios
This Garnacha dominated Priorat soars out of the glass with fine notes of raspberries, black cherries, sun warm rocks, mixed herbs and a hint of dark chocolate. Very smooth, polished and handsome, but maybe a tad so?
The taste is seamless, focused and fine with notes of black cherries, chrushed rocks, smoke and chocolate wafers. Very long and juicy. The 14,5% isn´t noticable. Very, very good but it is very polished, a sprinkle of roughness would have made it an even better wine.
92p (tasted 2020/03)
