1 hr decant, this is certainly a big lush wine with impressive fruit and red/blue flavors that once your tongue gets accustomed to delivers a flavorful experience. The wall of tannins make this a lush soft if not muted profile. Not sure how this would evolve from here, but the tannins are significant and while not showing wood influence certainly affect the beauty of the wine.
Huge bouquet, mineral, menthol, cherry liqueur. Piercing acidity, lush fruit still quite fresh. Substantial tannin, though buffered by the abundance of fruit. Simply delicious juice, and in no peril of old age, I predict this should drink well for at least several more years. This wine continues to be a benchmark for Priorat wines, regardless of price.
Still aromatically interesting with a lavender note dominant. Fruit still holding, but starting to dry up a bit. Has a great mineral underpinning that holds everything together & frames this medium weight wine. Paired well with a skirt steak that was grilled medium rare, but was supposed to be medium (chef's recommendation). Very enjoyable, but if you still have this in your cellar, I'd drink sooner rather than later.
