Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's critic for Spain writes:
"One of my favorite Syrahs from Spain is the 2014 Thalarn, named after the Tremp municipality in the Pyrenees where the winery is located. It was fermented in different vessels, in oak barrels, stone agars and stainless steel tanks, with malolactic fermentation and aging in for a year Brand new French oak barrels.It is a cool climate Northern Rhône Syrah, complex and intense with pronounced floral and spicy aromas and a lively palate that is remarkably fresh even if the acidity is not as high according to analysis.It is slightly warmer and more mature than 2013, but sometimes the Syrah suffers too much in cold years... It is frank and expressive, slightly balsamic, peppery and with a mixture of violets, sour cherries and hints of smoke.On the palate it shows a good balance and some bittersweet aromas, with very fine tannins, great intensity and length. 15,800 bottles and 50 magnums were bottled in February 2016."
