Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2011 Terrases is more or less 50/50 Carinena and Garnacha and is the wildest wine in the portfolio, it is his other regional wine, a wine with a slightly more elegant-rustic profile (think of a British farmer dressed in corduroy trousers) with notes of tree bark, damsons and flinty aromas. It has an austere palate with pungent flavors, ultra-fine tannins, very supple with good acidity. Drink 2014-2018.  (Feb 2014)

Wine Spectator 93 points - A light texture carries racy, intense flavors in this expressive red, with bright cherry, licorice, mineral, garrigue and spice notes mingling over light tannins and buoyed by lively acidity. Balanced, focused and elegant, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2021. 12,000 cases made. TM Rated #26 in Wine Spectator’s 2013 Top 100  (Sep 30 2013)

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!
