2004 Martinet Bru
"This trio of superb wines starts with the 2004 Martinet Bru from a great vintage in Priorat. It is composed of 30% Garnacha, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 10% Syrah. Purple-colored, it has a splendid nose of mineral, pencil lead, toast, vanilla, blueberry and black currants. Full-bodied and layered, it has gobs of black fruit flavors, ripe tannin, and superb focus and concentration leading to a long finish. Give this strapping wine several additional years in bottle and then drink it through 2020."
