The 2017 Alvaro Palacios "Les Terrasses" explodes with dark berries, black cherry, and plum, with the smell of warm rocks and dust that evoke an image of a rustic Spanish vineyard. Notes of dried roses along with spices and dark chocolate round out the finish of the wine, and develop further in the glass. The racy acidity in this wine as well as the grainy tannins gives the wine structure and energy, which helps to make each sip an unforgettable experience. One sip of this wine takes you right to the hillsides of Priorat!
