Winemaker Notes

Ceps Nous is blended with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, including fruit from Pasanau's most recently planted vineyards in La Morera. Aged in third- and fourth-year American and French oak from three to six months according to variety, this is a fresh interpretation of Priorat with ample intensity and body.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Give this time in the glass and the feral scents of leather and game fade, while fruitier scents emerge. A young-vine blend of garnacha (70 percent) along with merlot, cabernet and syrah, this has brash energy, wild in texture, with a clarity and honesty to its black fruit flavor. Serve it with a steak. Best Buy.

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby. Lively, sharply focused red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by smoky minerals, black tea and anise. Fresh black raspberry and cherry skin flavors display impressive depth, with zesty minerality adding spine. Turns spicier with air and finishes with very good clarity and length. This wine should be even better with a couple of more years bottle age.
Rating: 90(+?)

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Ceps Nous is a blend of 45% Garnacha, 30% Merlot, 5% Syrah and 20% Carinena. It has a very elegant nose of raspberry, wild strawberry and fennel. The palate is very well-balanced with a succulent core of spicy red fruit. The Carinena is very expressive, with wonderful balance and composure towards its smooth but structured finish. This represents outstanding value Priorat and has the substance to age well. Drink 2013-2025.

Cellar Pasanau, , Spain
Cellar Pasanau
The Pasanau family are perennial growers in Priorat, with vineyards located in the highest municipality of the region, literally skirting the sheer rock wall of the Sierra de Montscant, which forms the Priorat's viticulture boundary to its north and west.

At over 2,400 feet, Pasanau's "Finca La Planeta" dominates the regional landscape and experiences Priorat's widest daily temperature variation. This helps to retain freshness in the concentrated, late-harvested grapes, resulting in a uniquely tight-knit, albeit typically powerful Priorat style. The long, arid growing season, as elsewhere in Priorat, severely limits yields while packing the fruit with mineral extract and complexity.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
