Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2004 Genium is composed of 60% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, and 20% Merlot aged for 6 months in 30% new French oak. Purple colored, it exhibits a complex nose of cedar, mineral, red currants, raspberry, and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied, and bordering on opulence, this layered wine has excellent intensity and balance. Drink it over the next 4-6 years."

My Notes:

About Genium Cellar:

In the year 2002, six families with a long tradition in wine cultivation in the municipality of Poboleda ( Priorat), decided to join their efforts in order to elaborate a high quality wine, with grapes from their own crops. The wine cellar is located on groundlevel of a house, located in the center of the village, which once belonged to the very first settlement of the Cartusian monks of Scala Dei.

The origin of all the products elaborated in Genium Celler is exclusively from vineyards of its partners. These vineyards are eight properties distributed in the municipalities of Poboleda, Torroja del Priorat and La Morera del Montsant, all within D.O.Q.Priorat.
