"Great vintage. Temperatures lower than usual and rainy spring. Dry and hot summer and autumn. Harvest made two weeks later than usual, with very good balance between sugar, acidity and phenolic maturity. Hand harvested in boxes of 10 kg. Classification grain by grain double sorting table." —winemaker

Blend: 65% Grenache, 25% Carignane, 10% Syrah
"The 2013 Salanques is a blend of old-vine Garnacha (65%) and Cariñena (25%) and young-ish Syrah (10%) fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured in 50/50 new and second use French oak barrels. This has the complexity, depth and concentration of the top wines from many wineries. It's not particularly powerful, on the contrary, it is built on elegance and balance, with fresh aromas and a refined palate. It has clean, focused and pure aromas and flavors with very good acidity and very fine tannins. This is just great. 16,000 bottles were filled in April 2015." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate

"This vibrant red offers lively flavors of black cherry, plum, cola and mineral, set in a thick texture supported by firm tannins and orange peel acidity. Shows an alluring balance of power and polish. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases imported." —Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator

"Bright violet color. An assertive bouquet; scents of ripe dark berries, violet, incense and smoky minerals are joined by a zesty allspice nuance. Offers palate-staining blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter and more lively with air. The long, sappy finish shows excellent clarity and mineral cut, with sneaky tannins and a strong echo of vibrant dark fruit. Drinking window: 2019 - 2024." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
