Wine Advocate

The 2017 Els Escurçons was produced with pure Garnacha that was in full clusters but was crushed, and it matured in glass demijohn. This had just been bottled when I tasted it, and the wine was tight and a little reductive. So, an energetic decanting might be a good idea if you plan to open this anytime soon. I like the energy here, and there is tension and fine-grained tannins. It needs time. 3,000 bottles produced.

Vinous Media

Deep violet. A complex bouquet evokes spice-accented cherry, dark berry preserves, potpourri and baking spices, joined by a building licorice nuance. Sappy, palate-staining blueberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors show impressive depth as well as energy. Smoky mineral and black cardamom notes build on an impressively long finish that features mounting tannins and lingering florality.
