Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Produced from 85% Garnacha (70-year-old vines) and 15% Syrah (30-year-old vines) aged nine months in new and older American and French oak, it is another under-the-radar wine that dramatically over-delivers. A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon, it exhibits notes of rose petals, raspberry jam, crushed rocks, spring flowers and kirsch. Stunningly rich and medium to full-bodied, with wonderful vibrancy, precision and minerality, this beauty could easily pass for a grand cru Burgundy - it's that complex and interesting. I am blown away by what's in the bottle, but you be the judge. It should drink well for 5-6 years."

"When I was covering all the Spanish wines, this was one of my great value picks in the early days, and I am thrilled to see there are now 8,000 cases of this 'baby Priorat' from nearby Montsant available in the American market." (06/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Medium ruby with violet shades; very nice Glycerin mouthfeeling and texture; wild red and black berry flavors, cherry, spices and herbs; well integrated elegant smooth vanilla oaky toasty notes; ripe mouthful and complex on the palate: loads of sweet vibrant fruit; medium to full-bodied with soft and velvet tannins and nicely refreshing finish." - Winery

Winemaking/Aging:
"Temperature controlled fermentation (27-29 degrees C). Both varieties were vinified separately in stainless steel tanks. The maceration took place 8-14 days, malo-lactic fermentation in tank. Naturally cold stabilized in barrel, light filtration; no fining."

"9 month aged in new up to five years old French and American oak barrels, 228l. Light and medium toasted; no racking. After blending aged for 3 months in tank before bottling." - Winery
