Made from a blend of centenary Carignan vines and 80yrs old Grenache vines. Very well balanced and elegant. Around €80 at the wine shop. Excellent.

Bodega Mas Alta 2007. A powerful blend of mazuelo, garnacha e cabernet. Full bodied, plums, dark fruits, persistent. French taste in a Spanish body.

Velvety tannins envelop notes and aromas of cigar ash, slate like minerality, deep black fruits, all ending with a long harmonious finish

The quality obvious straight away here even though you can tell it will need a good 10 years to really shine. The fruit, the oak and the acid all balanced perfectly. But everything is restrained, the terroir showing itself more than anything and it's showing magnificently.

Decent priorat, sharp minerality. An old vine blend ( >100 year old vines) of carignan, cab sauv and Grenache. Fig and slate on the nose with a remarkable parity on the palate. Big tannins are a bit distracting. Decent not great.
