From the Critics:

  • "A joint venture between Eric Solomon and proprietor Nuria Altes, this is an unreal value made from 100% Grenache from vines planted nearly 100 years ago. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a flowery perfume revealing aromas of forest floor, underbrush, sweet black cherries, raspberries and strawberries. Medium-bodied, ethereal as well as sublime, this finesse-styled Grenache possesses a delicacy that is difficult to believe for such intensity. Consume it over the next 3-4 years." (11/13) - 91 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "A concrete tank aged blend of 100% Garnatxa Negra, from vines planted between 1912 and 1915, the 2012 Herencia Altes Garnacha Negra Terra Alta exhibits a transparent ruby color as well as scrumptious, perfumed aromas of wild strawberries, kirsch liqueur, creamy licorice, and crushed rock like minerality on the nose. Gorgeously fresh and fragrant, with a beguiling, downright sexy profile that's hard to resist and a clean, dry finish, it is a crazy value that should impress for 3-4 years." (03/13) - 90 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
