Alvaro Palacios Les Terrasses Garnacha Samso Magnum

Out of Stock

Cracka Review

Schisty, very high altitude mountain slopes planted to incredibly low-yield Samsó (Cariñena) and Garnacha. Wildly famous and expensive (especially in the US). Heady, wild, earthy, robust ... the best are also fine, elegant and perfumed.

A note on the Samsó/Cariñena thing: the old regional dialect name, Samsó is increasingly being preferred in Priorat as another wine region, D.O. Cariñena, is riled about Priorat using ‘their’ name on a grape variety. Ironically, D.O. Cariñena is a run-of-the-mill Garnacha- producing region!

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.
