About

91

"The fruit for the 2008 Vega Escal was sourced from around the village of Gratallops, a warmer sub-region of Priorat. It is a blend of 60% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, and 10% Syrah aged for 6 months in French oak. Enticing aromas of garrigue, lavender, incense, plum, and black cherry lead to a racy, intense, impeccably balanced, lengthy wine that can be approached now but will provide enjoyment for another 6-8 years."
