94The Wine Advocate

The nose has more red fruit than black, with notes of blood orange and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, lively acidity and freshness. It is both ripe and fragile, with good freshness.

94Vinous / IWC

...exotically perfumed bouquet evokes candied red fruits, Asian spices, lavender, smoky minerals and blood orange. Stains the palate with intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Pure, focused and expansive, closing with outstanding focus and smooth, harmonious, late-arriving tannins.

90Wine Spectator

Black cherry, plum, toast and light loamy flavors mingle in this firm red...good balance and intensity.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Chalky, dry and mineral on the palate...lovely dry finesse, strongly mineral.


Spain, Cataluna, Priorato

Priorat in southern Catalonia is one of Spain’s newer regions for quality wines. With only about 2,500 vineyard acres, it is not one of Spain’s larger appellations, and its rocky mountains and hillsides make for challenging vineyard management. But grapes have been grown here in the rich, volcanic soil since at least the Middle Ages, when Carthusian monks planted vineyards. Bulk wines were the main focus here until the late 1970s, when pioneering Spanish winemakers Alvaro Palacios and René Barbier replanted vineyards and vastly improved winemaking in the region. Clos Mogador, Clos Erasmus and Finca Dofi were some of the now much-admired wineries started in the later decades of the 20th century. By the 1990s many innovative, quality-focused wineries were started in Priorat, making it one of the hottest winemaking regions in Spain. Priorat was made a DO in 1954 but upgraded to the prestigious Demoninación de Origen Calificada, or DOCa, in 2000. (In Catalan, the regional language, the appellation abbreviation is DOQ.) Full-flavored, full-bodied wines with relatively high alcohol content are characteristic of Priorat, with Garnacha (Grenache) and Carinena (Carignan) being the traditional grapes.
