2016 Clos Mogador Red Wine- The 2016 Clos Mogador is a stunning new wine by this storied Priorat estate perched high in the Priorat hills. A blend of 49% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena, 16% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine shows off a deep core in the glass. Needing roughly an hour decant to be fully aroused, the wine slowly unveils ripe rose petals that mingle with bright orange zest and shades of black plum that all march in place in the glass. The texture and supple mouthfeel really entices as you are immediately greeted with wonderful bright acidity and a saline streak that races through the mid-palate. Layers of red and dark fruits collide with smoky and earthy undertones on the palate. Quite lithe and primary now, the 2016 Clos Mogador will provide drinking enjoyment for decades to come.

Quite a different personality from its predecessor in 2016. This one is hyper floral with scents of geranium and damp rose petals, followed by what I can only describe as a candied maraschino cherry quality on the nose. The palate developed a more defined profile with a full day of aeration, showing crunchy cranberry, fresh thyme and hints of underbrush. Decidedly more delicate than the previous two vintages, but with striking character and nuance. Excellent with seared salmon. — 10 days ago
Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .
