Winemaker Notes

"A stunning value, the 2003 Portal Crianza (a blend of 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Tempranillo) is a Spanish red to buy by the case. Aged 12 months in American and French oak, and bottled unfiltered, it is a dense, opulent, amazingly concentrated effort with loads of black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of earth, truffles, smoke, and spice. Displaying beautiful density, balance, and purity, with no hard edges, this lush Crianza can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years."
-Wine Advocate

Portal is elegant and intense on the nose, with hints of ripe berry fruits and aromas recalling ripe peach, plum, apricot… balsamic, smoky and spicy tones.

Vinos Pinol, Spain
Image of winery

The winery Vinos Piñol is located in the town of Batea. This town is 45 miles south of Barcelona in the high mountains of Tarragona. 1300 ft above the Mediterranean Sea, the Terra Alta region is located next to Priorat, enjoying the same climate conditions and altitude as the Priorat wine region.

Vinos Piñol enjoys a high Mediterranean, with very hot days and cold nights with moderate rains. This climate allows the grapes to ripen very well during the day and slowly during the night, allowing the acidity and the skin-to-juice ratio to build up to the necessary level to have a well-balanced wine. The vineyards are well-protected by the high mountains surrounding Batea.

Limestone on the surface layer and clay on the inside layer, the soils of Vinos Piñol are poor in organic matter. This causes the vines produce lower yields, creating more concentrated grapes. With old family-owned vineyards, small production, organic farming, and the same climate conditions as Priorat, Vinos Piñol has become known for a beautiful selection of wines.
