The Wine Advocate
Huellas is composed of 50% Carinena, 40% Garnacha, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah with the fruit sourced from around the villages of Poboleda and Porrera. The wine was aged for 12 months in 20% new French oak. It gives up an inviting bouquet of Asian spices, smoke, mineral, black cherry, and black plum leading to a high-toned, racy style of Priorat. The wine has plenty of sweet fruit, excellent volume, and a lengthy, pure finish.
On the nose, the wine is powerful but elegant, with black fruit aromas of blackberries, cocoa and aromatic local herbs (thyme and rosemary). On the palate, it is round and with character. A wine with ripe velvety tannins and provided by a mouth-watering finish.
