Reviews of Les Terrasses 2017
It's dry in the mouth with a medium acidity, high coarse tannins, high warm alcohol, full body and medium intensity flavours of red cherries, liquorice, anise, lavender and cedar.
Thin cherry red colour. Hints of raspberry. One of the softer wines of Priorat.
With the right pairing the wine tasted really good.
