Decanted 3+ Hours Dark red in color with a watery meniscus. Viscosity is high and the slow falling legs hold the color moderately. This is showing moderate+ concentration and bright reflections. Grenache dominate aromas present with moderate+ intensity. Jammy fruit aromas of strawberry and raspberry with notes of plum, wild berry and fig. Non fruit aromas of spice, mineral, leather, brandy and anise. The palate is focused and drinking well. Acid is moderate+. The ripe tannins are moderate. This wine has medium+ mid palate density, and a smooth full texture. Flavors of ripe plum, and fig mix with dried strawberry and raspberry upfront then notes of slate, licorice, and leather quickly take over. additional flavors of leaf tobacco, spice and menthol. The finish is long with moderate/moderate+ intensity that lingers on mineral and plum. should be able to go a few more years, but drinking very well now.
Decanted for 2 hours. The fruit gets more pronounced as it opens more. Can also get a sense of the rocky soil of Priorat in the juice. I noticed this consistency with others I have tasted from that region. For those who have never had wine from Priorat, give this bottling a chance to experiment with. Much more elegant the longer it is open.
