Finca La Planeta is six acres of mature Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the gravelly mountain terroir. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon is combined with 25% old-vine Garnacha, aged one year in French and American oak. Concentration of all factors is evident: minerals, herbs, black fruit and oak spice. Distinctively clear-cut and elegant style for Priorat; 13,000 bottles produced annually.
"Ruby-red. Fresh red- and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by graphite, tobacco and dried rose. Sharply focused red and dark berry flavors are given grip by dusty tannins and gain sweetness with air. Juicy and precise on the finish, with lingering notes of redcurrant and minerals. There's a Bordeaux-like poise and focus to this wine that I find intriguing. "
International Wine Cellar
"The 2005 Finca La Planeta is composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 20% old vine Garnacha and aged for one year in new French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it presents an expressive nose of mineral, violets, black cherry, and black currant. Ripe, sweet, and racy on the palate, it will continue to blossom with another 3-5 years of cellaring. Drink it from 2013 to 2020.
