Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 100 pts
Varieties: 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah
Appellation: Priorat, Catalonia, Spain
Winemaking notes: Grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in a combination of oak, concrete egg and clay amphorae. The wine was aged 20 months in large French oak barrels (2/3 new) and clay amphorae.
Black currant & leather
Complex notes of black currant, blackberry, dust, leather, red currant, blueberry, strawberry, cherry, bell pepper, olive and asparagus. Silky, elegant tannins. Will hold beautifully. Absolute benchmark for fine Priorat.
