Winemaker's Notes

The wine shows an opaque black, purple colour and an intense complex bouquet of ripe fruit, wild herbs, toasted bread, spices and smoke. The palate is massive and well balanced with a fat richness, a dense structure of velvety tannins and a powerful, lively acidity. Flavours of cristalised fruit, pepper, chocolate, coffee and a whole panapoly of spices and herbs. On the long finish there are the unique mineral tones that make Priorat so special.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1999 is more precise than the 2000, as well as perfumed. It is an opaque purple-colored, full-bodied, dense effort revealing notes of black fruits, liquid minerals, and flowers. There are layers and layers of richness, tremendous opulence, and impressive purity as well as persistence. Drink it over the next 15 years. This is a knock-out wine!"
95 Points

"Medium ruby. Cassis, black raspberry, blackberry, violet, licorice and mint on the tight, cool nose, plus a soupçon of port. Superconcentrated but suave and tightly wrapped; today the cabernet component is apparent (there is also grenache and syrah). Creamy and sweet in the middle but not at all heavy or over the top. This has serious backbone. Really broadens out and lingers on the tactile finish. Hard to spit.
Rating: 92(+?"

"Supple yet intense, this velvety red shows exuberant flavors of plum and wild berries, wrapped in luxurious chocolate-scented oak. Though made in a thoroughly modern style, its core flavors are distinctive and wild. Intriguing."
