Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The 2017 Morca is an extremely dark, almost opaque, ripe and oaky Garnacha from head-pruned vines in the villages of Borja and Tabuenca. It fermented in open-top stainless steel tanks with neutral yeasts followed by malolactic and 22 months in French oak barrels. This is super ripe and heady, in the style of a mini-Amarone, with black fruit in liqueur and tons of balsamic notes from the élevage. It's hard to see the underbrush and the Mediterranean herbs that are there in the background. The palate is really powerful, aggressive; it feels too young and alcoholic. Tasting against the 2015, it feels like this needs at least another couple of years in bottle to become a little more civilized. But tasting these wines is hard, it's declinations of the same excess ripeness and oak in different degrees. 11,273 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2019.
