3rd Spaniards meeting, 6 months after returning from the Oct 2013 Spain wine tour (At Yair's): one of the great Priorats on its own, especially among those for less than €50. 60% Carinyena (Carignan), 20% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon (5% others) - while usually Grenach is dominant among Priorat wines. palate is thick, tarry, perfumed, ample blackberries, nutmeg, liquorice and chocolate , with power, depth, memorable sensual aroma, round present tannins, rich powerful sweet fruit, great complexity. long minty-chocolatey and mineral finish. can last another 20 years.
Black with a deep ruby rim. Rocky earthiness on the nose with a lot of sweet black cherry and blackberry essence. Silky on the palate, medium to full bodied with great grip through the middle and a long finish.

(Vall Llach Priorat) #4; (tasted blind) VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-I like this; very stinky and earthy; also radishes, bell peppers and dark sour cherry fruit; I like where this wine is going; PALATE-this is, by leaps and bounds, the lightest of the wines, however, like so many Pinot Noirs, it is the most explosive -- a mushroom cloud of flavors in my mouth hitting all parts (minerality mixed w/ fruit mixed w/ earthiness); the most multi-dimensional; layers of flavor; subtleties; a long finish, but this is lighter; very drinkable right now, yet has a lot going on; lot of tobacco and blueberry on the back-end; WS-93; GV-90
