2000 Clos Mogador Priorat

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Sunday, July 30, 2006 - 14.5% abv, Grenache, Cab Sauv, Syrah, Carignan. A very dark ruby with a purple core, almost fully opaque. Little to no sediment. 2 hrs air before drinking. This was excellent. An immense and sexy nose dominated by smoky blueberries and desert rain (a clean cool dusty scent) with cedar, black fruits, vanilla and perhaps some cardamom thrown in. Totally lush and exotic nose, delightful and seductive - reminded me to some degree of a Cab Franc. Palate follows through beautifully - lush and integrated and actually not as full bodied or glycerin laden as I had expected (that is a good thing for me). Low acidity and loads of sweet ripe tannins. The nose outperformed my expectations, the palate met them, and unfortunately the finish fell mildly short of them -- pleasantly dusty finish but not as long, lively or full as I had hoped for.
