In 2007, Alvaro changed the sources of fruit for the Les Terrasses cuvee to only old vines or Velles Vinyes in Catalan. In doing so, he reduced the production of this wine by almost a 3rd and increased the quality a great deal. The wine comes from mostly estate vineyards with some purchased fruit from select lots of old vine Garnacha. Starting in 2011 the blend has changed to only indigenous varietals - Garnacha and Samso. Vineyard yields are low at 10-25 hL/hA.

|The wine has ripe fresh flavors of black cherries, blackberries and plums with coffee accents. Smooth and graceful with a long and fruity finish!
