The Finca la Planeta is dense, ripe, and powerfully structured wine. This manly Cabernet will show well today with rich venison stews or will mellow and soften over the next 10 years.
The Pasanaus are perennial growers in La Morera, the highest municipality of the Priorat, with vineyards abutting the sheer rock wall of the Sierra de Montsant which forms Priorat's viticultural boundary. Finca La Planeta is six acres of mature Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in gravelly scree. Aged one year in new French oak. A more clear-cut and elegant (less Mediterranean) style than is typical for Priorat. 90 Points, Guía Peñín 2003 (Spain's top critic.)
