Llicorella (schist and slate) terraces provide a precarious perch for these old vines, which are divided equally between 80 year-old Cariñena and 30 year-old Garnacha. The blend is aged for 18 months in new Allier oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep damson fruit, with smoky rich notes and hints of gunpowder and Christmas spice. This is a powder keg of potential. Simon Field MW – Wine Buyer
