Raspberry, cedar, leather and clove notes. Excellent length, long finish. Med + acidity with medium tannins. High complexity wine that had immense gastronomic capabilities. High alcohol at 15%. Was beautiful with steak. Still has ageing potential! Deliciousness in a bottle! #garnacha

Bursting with ripe fruit, dusty thyme, sage, and old leather. A floral note on the finish---violets?

Bonito color, pese a su edad, ribete teja, en nariz todavía persiste la fruta, tabaco, cuero, notas balsámicas. En boca sedoso, potente y en un estado increíble.... Una locura!!!! 😍😍😍😍

For me part of drinking this wine was just the sensorial and emotional part of drinking it but the other part was historical like being transported in time to the beginning of something. 1982 #priorat was still in diapers as we know it today and yet then was the creation of this wine. I enjoyed it a lot. A rare gem.

Medium to full-bodied and complexly layered with strawberry, red currant, cherry fruits up front and a backbone of flowers, mineral, oak, and chocolate. Long finish.
