Winemaker's Notes

From vineyards up to 90 years old, this is the ultimate expression of the soil. The coupage of the four grape varieties (mainly cariñena) and the diverse locations of the vineyards lend the wine a great complexity, structure and intensity. Authentic Priorat character.

Critical Acclaim

"Believe it or not, this wine smelled like a hypothetical blend of the famed Pomerol, Le Pin, and the two distinctive Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa Valley, Colgin and Bryant. Truly great stuff, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with violets, licorice, toast, and crushed stones. It exhibits massive layers of fruit and body, tremendous purity and palate presence, and a sumptuous finish. Exotic, rich, and distinctive, this is only the second vintage for this producer. Bottled unfiltered after aging in French and American oak for 14 months, it is also fairly priced for a wine this compelling."
