Tasting Notes

3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

3 bottles x Quest 2011

"The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate's Robert Parker, Feb 2014

Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.

The Producer

Castell d'Encus

Celler Castell d'Encus is a winery in the Costers del Segre DOP, in Western Catalonia. The vineyards are located in the Spanish Pre-Pyrenees at 850–1250 meters above sea level - making them the highest vineyards in Catalonia. The winery's name comes from the nearby abandoned medieval village and castle of Castelló d'Encús.

Founded in 2001, the winery's first harvest was in 2008. Since then, the winery has quickly built up a reputation for producing quality wines, with a number of both of its red and white wines receiving more than 90 points in the Spanish wine guide, Guía Peñín, and over 90 points by Parker. The winery follows organic farming practices, and uses geothermal energy in an effort to reduce energy expenditure and therefore its environmental impact.

Along with using wood and steel tanks, the winery is using the medieval wine vats that are cut into the sandstone bedrock and date back to the 12th century.
