This nose has a pronounced intensity of ripe black fruits (black currants, black plums) dark chocolate, herbal and intense minerality. The palate is beautiful with well integrated and complex notes of black fruits, (blackberries, black plum skin) clove spice, savory spice, bittersweet dark chocolate, smoke, and granite. The minerality in this wine is amazing. It hits in all the right places and adds depth of this full body wine.

Stunning nose of mineral and roasted red fruit. 100% carignan from a single vineyard

Big time complexity here. Lots of piña colada like fruit but then pepper and spice too. Somehow fresh, austere, ripe, and spicy at the same time but different every time you look.

What is the official grape of Priorat, Grenache or #Carignan?

Grenache may be better known, especially in modern times, but this version of 60 year vine Carignan is making a good case for the latter.

Violet flowers, blackberry and blueberry, a little graphite and a shade of light spice. The tannins are ripe and medium grain, going almost powdery extending into the finish.

Make sure you open and let it get air for an hour before you get into the wine.

Young black spicy crunchy fruit, so much mineral and verve. Look at that alcohol! From Priorat! You can be mean when you look this clean
