Despite hints of peanut oil and sweaty leather on the nose, this wine captures the essence of Priorat. It’s dense, herbal and schisty, with lots of black fruit and black olive flavors working the textured palate. It’s not particularly tannic or tough, so enjoy it now and over the next couple of years.
Dry, leathery and pungent, with plenty of pepper and earth to the nose. The blend is 60% Garnacha and the rest Cariñena, and it pushes surprisingly fresh raspberry flavors along with a fine undercurrent of oak. Racy and cleansing, with hints of cola. A good ’03 for early drinking; no need to cellar. Imported by Haro Imports.
