Wine Maker’s Notes: Brilliant ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice, smoky minerals and a hint of succulent flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy, round and open-knit; a peppery note adds lift and cut to warm blackberry, bitter cherry and licorice pastille flavors. The long, mineral-accented finish shows very good focus and closes on a youthfully tannic note, leaving cherry pit and floral notes behind. Blend: 70% Garnacha, 30% Mazuelo
92 point Wine & Spirits: Here’s a good entry point to the wines of Priorat: A garnacha-based blend, this has touches of slate, but it’s mainly focused on fruity notes of blackberries and cherries. Earthiness links the fruit and the firm, sharp tannins, ending fresh, a window that opens out to the Catalan mountains.
