I'm not sold on this wine. Its a good solid wine with lots of dark fruit, oak notes, some floral and spice notes. The palate is full on, but still has some balance and is tasty, but I don't know that I would ever be able to pick this out as a Spanish wine. A bit too modern and similar to a Napa cabernet for me to want to get any more.
The 2007 takes the intensity of Priorat and balances it perfectly with a nose of ripe blackberry, raisin, dark floral tones, tobacco and herbal lift. On the palate, I found silky textures on a mid-weight frame with notes of wild berry, dark chocolate, herbs and hints of tannin tugging at the palate. This was balanced throughout and finished on focused fruit intensity. The 2007 should enjoy a long drinking window and improve for over a decade in the cellar. I hope to taste it again some day.
