Now we're talking. 3rd day open and really hitting its stride! Deep black and red fruit, that slate minerality and acidity are still really vibrant. I guess I should open the Doix 2 days ahead from now on, eh?

Last bottle ­čś┐ yawning depth to the berry fruit here, bolstered by some cranberry acidity. Perfumed candied Violets and that smoky priorat character. Muscle and finesse. I don't think I could drink more than one glass (too boozy, 15%) but I think we drink a lot of these wines way too young, and it's nice to see some evolution

2009, if you can't tell.

Wanting to learn more about the grenache/garnacha grape led me to Priorata and this wine. Opened yesterday, mostly tasted today, I can tell the wine has softened quite a bit and is all the better for it. Candied nuts, black pepper, black cherry and black licorice, lavender, fig and some gravelly notes on the nose. And, as my girlfriend says, "Everything in the nose is dried".

Much more earthiness on the palate but with some full bursting red and black fruits. The finish lingers wonderfully and is well balanced, but that may be due to it having time to develop in the bottle after opening. I probably would've gone less for this yesterday, but I'll be damned if this isn't a pretty great wine today.

Expectacular Carignane & Grenache from Mas Doix, absolutely wonderful Priorat! Still tasting in mouth after an hour. One of the Grandes Pagos de Espa├▒a, well deserved place in top wines of this wonderful country! Thanks to Ram├│n Llagostera for the tasting...
