"Lauren's amphora-aged wine, called 'Laderas de Sedella' is fermented in French oak eggs, then cement amphora for one year. Sulfur is used only at bottling, there is no fining or filtration, and he uses only native yeasts. The wines have beautiful clarity and are packed with slatey minerality, fine tannins and fresh bright acidity." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Laderas de Sedella ("Slopes of Sedella") refers to the steep slopes where the vines grow, with the steepest grades often reaching 45%! The wine is a blend of several grape varieties including Romé, Jaén, Montua, Moscatel Romano, and Garnacha – the last of which might be the most familiar to Spanish wine lovers. This 2013 is a superb showing of the high degree of diversity that you get in the field blend, with suggestions of mint, anise, and mineral weaving in and out of the juicy dark cherry core. The finish lingers on with good tannic presence and a final fireworks display of spice notes.
"2013 saw a wet and cold growing season with harvest later than average for the young vines used in the 2013 Laderas de Sedella. It has a field blend of Romé, Garnacha, Jaén, Montua and Moscatel Romano, similar to the one found in the old vineyard used for its sibling Sedella. This is sourced from young vines from 0.9 hectares planted on slate soils, but in this case with a southern exposition. It was cropped form a wet and cooler, more continental vintage than 2012. The different varieties were picked and fermented together in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and then transferred to terracotta amphorae, egg-shaped cement vats and oak for malolactic and 13 months of ageing without being racked. There are plenty of aromas of beef blood, minerals, Mediterranean herbs and even flowers over the core of berry fruit. The palate shows fine-grained tannins and good balance. This is super. 3,148 bottles were filled in May 2015." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate

"Deep ruby. Wild, mineral- and spice-laced red and dark berry scents, along with suggestions of licorice pastille and succulent herbs. Juicy and focused in the mouth, conveying bitter cherry and cassis flavors and a strong, bracing jolt of juicy acidity. The long, sweet finish displays reappearing mineral and licorice notes, supple tannins and an exotic flourish of candied flowers. Drinking window: 2018 - 2022." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
