Pencil lead and iodine with chauky tannins and smooth finish. Thought it was Bordeaux blend.

I bought a case of this at HDH wine many years ago. I tried it a few times over the years and it was not ready (super mineral) and I have started opening these and I think they are ready. Not the most integrated wine, but delicious.

My favorite priorat as of yet, mostly garnacha, secondary, cariñena, third cab. Gorgeous fruit followed by spice.

Amazing, definitely meets my very high expectations from Priorat. Expressive and spicy, great fruit-wood and tannin-acidity balances (all on high level). Peculiar blend with aromas of Syrah and grenage

Vibrant flavor as soon as it hit the palate...a very good wine that outperformed a much higher price selection that soon followed.
