    Winemaker Notes
    While originally conceived of as a value wine, Les Terrasses "Velles Vignes" has slowly evolved into the essence of what makes Priorat special. Drawing on 15+ years of study, Terrasses is sourced from many of the region's steepest and oldest vineyards-many of them north-facing to avoid the intense afternoon sun. With the 2007 vintage, Alvaro acknowledged Les Terrasses' "graduation" by adding the "Velles Vignes" designation to the label.
    Blend: 50% Garnacha, 50% Samso


    93: Wine Spectator
    Graceful and harmonious, this red shows good depth, balancing juicy cherry and berry flavors with notes of vanilla, mountain herb and mineral. Drink now through 2022.

    93: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 2014 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes is a blend of 60% Garnacha and 40% Cariñena from different villages. The 2014 vintage was a high yielding, warm vintage and the grapes from the nine villages of Priorat fermented in a combination of oak and cement vats with natural yeasts and matured in oak barrels for ten months. This is always a characterful wine, with the unmistakable signature of the Cariñena with the rusticity of the dusty roads of Priorat. The palate is really lively, with some dusty tannins and high acidity. It's long and it finishes with a mineral sensation. Despite my references to some rusticity, this is very elegant, much more elegant and refined than the wines from the 1990s and 2000s. Elegant rusticity, that is!
