Substantial texture and weigh albeit very tight and wound up. Dark, meaty, filled with spices, tobacco, tar, and mixed black fruits. There’s a considerable amount of brett but it integrates into the wines richness and earthy minerality. Struck by the length of tannin perception and mineral core that envelopes the wine across the palate. Definitely a more masculine expression than LBT.

Garnacha, Shyrah and Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Fruity, aromatic and floral nose. Full body, but elegant way. Cassis and spices on the body with medium plus acidity. Young and fresh.

Hues of purple and deeply-concentrated ruby. Heavy extraction and tearing on the glass. Nose has strong leather, barnyard, and earthy notes. Also dried prune, stewed plum sauce, and creme de cassis along with delicate anise and lilac notes. Nicely balanced on the palate. Has complexity, an interesting character, and noticeable tannins. Delish!

It’s no secret that I love the wines of Priorat and those of Clos Erasmus are some of my favorites. The winemaking and grape selection are meticulous and Daphne Glorians’s attention to detail is reflected in this wine. This is classic Priorat with currants, raspberry, and wild herbs on the nose. The smooth tannins glide across the palate as the influence of black slate is evident. This wine is mostly Grenache with a bit of Cabernet and Syrah blended in. The 2016 is a young wine - approachable now - but should improve with age. Gorgeous wine! 2016 vintage on Feb 16, 2019
