Needed 60 to 90 minutes of air to open up - initially with some funk that blew off - eventually black tea, barbecued meat and stewed blackberry and plums came out.

Ripe fruits, wet rocks, petrichor, grilled mushrooms, dried herbs. Notes of ripe plum on the palate. Unlike most Priorat, it's only 25% Grenache. The rest comes from Samsó (Carignan), Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot which explains the amount of tannins left even after sitting in the bottle for 16 years. Macadamia and marzipan on the finish. Give it at least 1 hour in a decanter.

Yum. This is the second or third time I've had this wine and each time it has been immensely enjoyable. Super dark red color bordering on black. Almost port like knows yet still super super fresh. Loads of fruit loads of character long Supple silky finish. Remarkable

Over the top ripeness in this hot year. Jammy and lacking decent acidity

This still had a lot of life left. Dark brooding fruit, still good tannins after 19 years. Delicious

5 Red Grape Spanish Priorat Blend. A walk through a blueberry patch. Hints of black currant and dried prunes. Woody and Smokey. Hints of dried herbs and dark chocolate. Youthful even though it is more than a decade past the vintage date. Delicious! Thanks John.

Blood red, earthy and tobacco-y, but the age has mellowed out and integrated the tannins nicely. Great now, could she another ten years! Before @Ryan Colthorp , I thought priorat was a grape!
