TASTING NOTES

Nus del Terrer (Nus = 'Knot' or 'Tangle') is a judicious integration of 60% Garnacha with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. Creamy texture and an exotic, reverberating finish develop and amplify the mineral theme of Terrer d’Aubert. 15,000 bottles produced.

PRESS

Nus del Terrer (2011) - "Deep ruby. Pungent cherry compote and cassis scents are complicated by pipe tobacco, lavender and woodsmoke. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering ripe dark fruit flavors enlivened by a peppery nuance and a touch of floral pastilles. Dusty tannins give shape and grip to the long, smoky finish, which leaves a bitter cherry note behind."

Nus del Terrer (2010) - "This blend of Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, ripe bruiser with huge blackberry aromas that set up a wide-bodied, raw-feeling palate with tons of extract and monster tannins. Blackberry, espresso, chocolate and spice flavors are full, ripe and deep. Things hold firm on a staunch, youthful finish. Drink through 2021."

Nus del Terrer (2010) - "(60% Garnacha and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon): Opaque ruby. Complex, highly perfumed bouquet of dark berry preserves, smoky minerals and incense, with a hint of pipe tobacco in the background. Juicy, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering energetic blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. A suave mocha quality comes up on the clinging finish, which leaves zesty mineral and cracked pepper notes behind."

Nus del Terrer (2010) - "The pitch black Spanish red blend opens with a mild black licorice and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, the wine is full bodied, balanced, and dense. The flavor profile is black currant with notes of black licorice, dark chocolate, and black cherry. I also detected a hint of oak as well. The finish is dry and dusty tannins linger for quite a while. This big wine will pair well with a juicy cowboy ribeye steak. Enjoy."

VINYES DEL TERRER WINERY INFO

Overview: The Morell family vineyard estate is comprised of nine parcels totaling seventeen acres in the outskirts of Tarragona on the Spain’s Mediterranean coast. Defying urban sprawl, the vineyards lie within a mile and half of the sea, their soils composed of calcareous loam derived from shell (fossil) limestone, known locally as lumaquela.

The heat-mitigating sea breezes and the singularly mineral soils motivated the Morells to perennially dedicate their parcels to vineyard, with the objective of producing wines at the highest and most expressive level. With the encouragement of experts and in recognition of the estate’s unique viticultural gifts, TERRER (terroir) was the clear choice of name.

Red varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha, vines between 15 and 25 years of age. Viticulture is sustainable and yields are held to a scant 1.5 tons per acre. Careful berry selection is followed by natural fermentation and aging during approximately one year in seasoned barriques and 5,000-liter uprights of French oak, seeking minimal wood influence. 2010 represents a début of sorts, the first vintage produced in a new bodega facility in the heart of the estate.
