Shows more like a carbonated Jura pinot. Just delicious in all ways. — 6 years ago

Cara Nord Cellar

Vino Rouge Garnacha Blend 2013

I expected it to be tight and rather acidic but it's surprisingly mellow and soft for a young wine. Jammy with hint of plums. — 8 years ago

Bodegas Ego

Goru 18 M Monastrell Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Blend of Cab Sauv & Monastrell with some Mourvèdre, Mataro & Garrut. Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red and black fruits with some floral and spice. On the palate flavors of sweet cherry and black raspberry with notes of cacao and currants with underlying citrus. Big firm tannins needing time to soften, good acidity balance, medium+ finish ending with fruit and vanilla oak. — 4 years ago

CX Penedès Cartoixa Vermell

Sat afternoon at home. Aromatic, tropical fruit nose. Very fresh on the palate, with satisfying tartness that accentuates how fresh it is. Slight salinity that gives it additional complexity.

The CX of Partida Creus is a real bombshell of freshness, a nose that plays on notes of white fruits, citrus, and aromatic herbs. Tart and funky on the palate, with a long finish. A super rare and super good wine.

Partida Creus is the project of two Italians now in residence in the Tarragona region of Catalonia, just south of Barcelona. The idea of the project was to work with historical, often overlooked local varietals that in many cases were not recognised by the D.O. of the area: Penedès. Massimo and Antonella strategically went about buying up small plots of abandoned vineyards dotted around the area where mostly unknown varietals such as Garrut, Vinyater, Samsó and Queixal de Llop grew. They sought to revitalise the vines and work out the best expression for these old varetals, working without chemicals in the vineyard and without selected yeasts or any other additions in the cellar. They make an impressively dizzying number of different wines, all of which are unified by a very distinctive house style - raw, visceral and pungent reds, and salty, turbid, expressive whites. As a couple they have an insatiable energy that really comes through in the wine.
