The reliable 2015 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes is the wine with a higher Cariñena content from the portfolio; it's 55% Garnacha, 45% Cariñena and perhaps 1% white grapes sourced from the nine villages of Priorat. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in oak and concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in barriques for ten months. I've always liked the elegant rusticity of Les Terrasses, which in the last few years has become more ethereal. This seems to be a lighter vintage, very pure, aromatic, even floral, intense and long. This seems to be a more elegant version of Terrasses, long and silky. 136,000 bottles produced.

Palacios blends Les Terrasses from garnacha and cariñena grown in different areas of Priorat, presenting an overarching vision of the region’s wines. And that vision in 2015 is rich in herbal notes, tension and freshness, speaking clearly of the new style of Priorat reds. However, behind these bright, crystalline flavors, there are notes of spice and riper fruit flavors that give the wine a delicious depth.

Beautiful nose of crushed raspberries and plums with floral and stony undertones. Slate,too. Full body, a great velvety tannin structure and wonderful harmony. Incredible purity. Long, fresh and flavorful finish. Drink now or hold.
