Red capsule (the equivalent of 1er Cru level). L'Arbossar is a steep, north-facing vineyard of 90-year-old Cariñena (Carignan) with schist and granite soils near the village of Torroja where the Terroir Al Límit cellars are situated. Against conventional wisdom, L'Arbossar was planted on the cooler, north-facing slopes of Torroja. It was this unusual site that informed much of Huber's early experience with the terroir of Priorat. As Luis Gutiérrez confirms it's always a "fresher and more floral style" than the corresponding Dits del Terra, the latter from the south-facing slopes. Both wines are made in the same fashion: 100% whole-bunch vinification with wild yeasts and raised for 16 months in a combination of concrete and large-format, neutral oak. Heady, complex aromas of cherry compote, blackberry, dark chocolate, incense, and smoky minerals. Ripe, densely packed, and sweet, with intense, surprisingly lively flavors of black and blue fruits, cracked pepper, and candied flowers. Silky tannins gain strength on the finish, which shows impressive energy and spicy persistence. 93 points, Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar,
