The Thalarn by Castell D'Encus contains aromas of chocolate and cherry with hints of tobacco accompanied by nuances of blackberry jam and hints of cinnamon.
Intense red with violet reflections.
The entry is silky and velvety, aromatic and juicy, with soft tannins. Evokes memories of cherries, vanilla and spicy notes. Its flavor is intense, with marked acidity and a lingering finish.
Castell D'Encus Thalarn is a wine full of harmony and balance, with bittersweet aromas, very fine tannins, great intensity and length. The wine develops slowly and needs time to develop its aromas. It is powerful but balanced, with rich, fine-grained tannins and a dry, long finish.
Goes well with grilled, pan-fried, lamb, poultry and game.

Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's critic for Spain writes:
"The 2018 Thalarn is named after the village it comes from. The Syrah vines were planted in 2003 on calcareous soils at an altitude of 850 to 1,000 meters. It was fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, oak barrels and old stone vats outdoors and aged 12 Months in new French oak barrels followed by a further three months in larger oak barrels and then aged in bottle for around three years It is aromatic, juicy, smoky and varietal with a moderate aging of 13.23% ABV and good freshness and balance. Contrary to what one might think, the wine is not oak heavy; the oak is well integrated and fused with the fruit. It develops slowly, taking time to reveal its aromas of ripe berries and undergrowth. He is powerful but balanced, with plenty of fine-grained tannins and a dry, long finish. 9,900 bottles and 100 magnums were filled in January 2020."
