93 Pts Luis Gutierrez - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"A little marked by the Ã©levage with lactic aromas intermixed with notes of fruits of the forest, the 2013 La Serra Negre is a blend of old-vine CariÃ±ena and Garnacha from a single vineyard that names the wine: This is a red matured in new French oak foudre (that I hope they'll reuse in following vintages and mark the wine less) which might explain the initial oaky note. The palate is sinewy, fine-grained and has good acidity that lends elegance and balance to the wine. A pleasant surprise and a new wine to follow, as it should get better as the foudres age and impart less aromas and flavors to the wine. 2,000 bottles."
"La Serra is a sparsely planted vineyard of head-pruned vines of Carinyena and Garnatxa Negre planted around the turn of the last century. Adjacent to Benufet, La Serra shares a similar terroir â sandy limestone soil, locally known as PaÃ±al. Over time, as vines have died, they have been replanted but only the oldest vine fruit from La Serra is used for this cuvÃ©e of roughly 80% Carinyena with 20% Garnatxa Negra. Once aged in new 300L French oak barrels, Rafael de Haan and Nuria Altes have recently started to age this wine in French oak foudres." - Importer
