  • Monthly Tasting Group HWS; Priorat: In the bouquet red and dark forest fruits, garrigue, oak, minerals and (horse) barnyard. On the palate the same impressions as in the nose, beautifully ripe fruits, elegant and good acidity and soft tannin and a good length. Overall a beautiful and concentrated wine in its young maturity stage. Can easily last until 2022/23.

  • Powerful and tight at first, this really benefited from 60 minutes in a wide-bottom decanter. Very dark ruby, no sign of age. Once the nose has opened up, the aromas are piercingly clear - ferrous, earthy, with equal parts of red and black fruits. For my palate, somebody really had the pick date just right as this is balanced and offers a classy, lengthy finish. Plenty of cool acids here to round out the solid structure. 14,5% abv, drink thru 2023. recommended

    Served non-blind; a fair amount of very fine, purple sediment

  • Very powerful, lots of dark berries, quit some acidity but still ok. Elegant and long finish.

  • An inky black wine, full of sweet, dense aromatics- very youthful, I feel like this is a sort of infanticide drinking this wine so young. Aromas of flowers, tar, menthol, crushed black cherries, and granite jump out of the glass. The taste is very similar with a bright mineral acid that cuts through the fruit of the wine like a knife- this wine definitely needs some more time to tame that acidic twang. Overall, I was very impressed with the wine, I decanted an hour prior to service and drank over the next two, the wine continued to open and evolve, showing softer flavors and aromatics of strawberries and lilacs- very well made.

  • I found this wine thin and monolithic. Light violets and dark cherry on the nose. Nice acidic structure, but bland and one dimensional (cherry) on the palate. Slight improvement with a tomato based pasta, but really nothing special. Would not repurchase.
