  1. Castell d'Encus Quest 2012
    WA92
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  I also tasted the 2012 Quest, a fresher wine than the 2011 (despite the very warm and dry growing season), which was only bottled one week prior to my tasting. It’s a deep purple-colored effort, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot which aged in barrel for 12 months. It has aromas of properly ripe fruit, with bare hints of peppery aromas and plenty of cassis, pencil shavings and graphite notes, surprisingly balanced for a just-bottled wine. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine-grained, dusty tannins, very Bordeaux-like texture with a somehow Mediterranean juiciness. Drink 2015-2020.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #211, February 2014

  2. Castell d'Encus Thalarn 2013
    WA93
    $41.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  One of the most expressive Syrahs from Spain, the 2013 Thalarn carries the name of the village where the winery is located. It was fermented in stone lagares (from the 12th century!), oak vats and stainless steel tanks and then transferred to new French oak barrels for malolactic and 11 months élevage. The nose does not show the oak, as the herbal character is stronger. At first I got some animal aromas, faint leather and a touch of tempera paint that developed strong medicinal notes with time in the glass. At the same time it's quite a mineral, stony wine. The palate is medium-bodied, with a very fine texture and polished tannins, good acidity and length. It is still quite young and undeveloped so is in need of some time in bottle. It might improve with time but today I don't see it as the level of the previous vintages and the animal hint makes me a little hesitant. 19,600 bottles produced.  Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #219, June 2015
