Mas Alta – 5/06/2012

Els Pics 2010 (grenache, carignan, others, young vine)
Youthful exuberant black fruits, cherries, cassis, blackcurrant. Juicy bold and fruit forward, some sweetness of fruit and oak. Voluptuous, generous full-flavoured, long sweet flavours. Gentle tannins, bright acids and fruits. Very dark, but balanced and clean. Pleasant, contained alcohol. Some chocolate and anise notes. Some herbal spice notes too.

Cirerets 2008 (garnacha 60% 20 yrs, carignena 40% 60 yrs)
More red fruits than black, spicier currants and red cherries. Very carignan strong. Great concentration and density, very lively and youthful. Generosity of acid and fruit, tannins balanced and harmonious. Something unique and special in the wine, no savoury elements though. Certainly interesting.

La Basseta 2008
Pretty intense dark colour. Slight menthol dark cassis earthy, toasty sweet oak. Quite velvety and opulent, very intense dark fruits, good carry-through but a clean finish. A very easy to drink wine, but with good character, balance and depth.

La Creu Alta 2007
Inky black, bold fruit and darkness, very sweet and juicy, juby jammy on the nose. Fantastic structure, depth, builds on the palate very nicely, will really benefit with a lot of age. The structure is fantastic

Artigas 2011 Blanco
Juicy soft generous fruit-driven white wine. Good minerality and texture, very full and broad, not exactly fresh or bright. Ripe tropical notes, some creamy characters. Some citrus elements as well.
