2008: 92 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Les Terrasses Vinyes Velles is the same blend as the Camins cuvee (60% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) but is aged for 12 months in 20% new French oak. It offers greater complexity both aromatically and on the palate. Smoothly-textured, intense, plush, and spicy, it opens up nicely in the glass with floral (lavender), mineral, pepper, and black cherry notes reappearing in the robust finish."

2008: 92 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "A sexy, highly perfumed bouquet displays scents of candied raspberry, cherry cola, licorice and potpourri, supported by a strong mineral undertone. Juicy, penetrating red and dark berry flavors stain the palate and repeat the licorice note. Dusty tannins add grip and focus to a long, mineral-dominated finish."

2008: 90 Points - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator: "This medium-bodied red shows balance and drive, with cherry, berry, mountain herb and smoke notes, supported by firm, smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Compact and focused."

Wine maker notes
The wine has ripe fresh flavors of black cherries, blackberries and plums with coffee accents. Smooth and graceful with a long and fruity finish!
