Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
They are very happy with the 2017s, and I previewed the 2017 Altaroses, the entry-level red that also has the subtitle Garnatxa Fina de Darmós. It's a bright and floral Garnacha, the Mediterranean grape par excellence on cool, sandy soils. It fermented with full clusters and matured in well-seasoned (no younger than ten years' old) barrels. It's quite fruit-driven with notes of red licorice, perfumed and aerial. This wine will not be bottled until October or November, after it has spent around one year in cask, as the wine needs to develop and show more nuances. From a fresh and low-yielding year, it is very juicy and outlined in the palate with effervescent freshness. This should be delicious and approachable on release. They expect to make 26,000 bottles and didn't release the 2016 vintage.
