Reviews and Ratings

Miguel Torres. A gorgeously rich and full-bodied Spanish red wine with velvet layers of fleshy black fruit. Just enough balancing acidity for food and to keep things interesting in your mouth. Pair with grilled meats. MINE: The grapes for Salmos are planted on slopes of shale called "licorella stone." The undergo extreme differences in temperature between night and day. The wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Salmos is named on honour of the monks of La Cartuja who first planted the vines in the Priorat region. OTHER: Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review: Beautiful rustic old world Spanish red blend. Full bodied, well balanced, integrating nicely. Declared 14.5% ABV and aged 14 months in French oak. Tasted stewed red berry fruit, earthy, leather, minerality. Pairs well with roasted or braised red meats, a rare cut of BBQ filet mignon, or for the vegan a medley of roasted root vegetables and quinoa salad. Tasted 2012 vintage in May 2017 after decanting 2 h. 93 points. Great value! OTHER: Medium deep ruby red colour. Young and rather intense nose with high ripeness showing floral notes, sweet red fruit, Kirsch and garrigue. The palate is well balanced in a ripe style with a fresh backbone, rounded tannin, juicy red fruit, a fine herbal spiciness and a long and warm finish. Juicy and attractive. Score - 89 (Andreas Larsson, blindtasted.com, Nov. 2016). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
