K&L Notes

Fredi Torres has been steadily making a name for himself in the Montsant and Priorat regions. A leader of the new school in Priorat, Fredi prefers to let the fruit in the vineyard do the talking, playing around with some whole clusters and preferring that the oak imprint be dialed back in his wines. In this case, 85% of the wine ages in tanks while the remainder spends 10 months in barrel. This particular cuvée consists of Garnacha, Cariñena, Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot and a small proportion of white grapes, a mixture from old and young vineyards on slate and decomposed granite soils.

    Fredi Torres was a DJ before hearing the siren call of the Priorat. Now he is one of the people often recognized as breathing new life into this famed, resurgent Catalan wine region. This bottling is as delicious an introduction to Priorat as I have tasted in quite some time. Savory thyme and Mediterranean scents lead to a palate full of dark fruits, sauvage, meaty qualities, and a persistent minerality which leaves a wonderfully fresh impression on the mid palate through to the finish. This reminds me of what I first loved about Chateaunneuf du Pape when I first tasted those wines. Pair with braised lamb or short ribs for a real treat, and toast to the future of Priorat!

    A lovely and surprisingly bright cuvee from Priorat the 2014 Fredi Torres adds structure and finesse to the fruit found here. This is not a big plush dark berry offering, instead notes of cherry and cranberry are backed by a nice balancing acid and a touch of mineral structure. Very smooth tannins play on the palate without ever overwhelming. A tasty red wine for many types of occasions.
