Weekly tasting group #094; Priorat (@ BS): The bouquet is a bit rustic with red fruits, earth and spiciness. On the palate still a lot of juicy cherries, herbs, fresh acidity and ripe and round but firm tannin. A bit drying in the finish. Lovely wine, ready now and no real hurry.
This wine really evolved over time, starting with a little funk, pepper and leather and slowly showing more depth and intrigue. It still has some fruit, but the secondary flavors are more apparent, with mineral and savory notes. Drink now.
Black berry fruits, earth, leather, chocolate in both the bouquet as well as the taste. Pleasant acidity, soft tannin with still a good bite. The wine is ready now and will stay on this level for some years; at least until 2015.
