Åpner med tung lukt av fjøs og promp. Men det blåser av ganske raskt med litt luft.

Modne kirsebær, lær, tobakk, litt sopp og jord samt et hint av fat på nesa.
Pent fyldig og syrlig vin med modne tanniner. Fin balanse.
Lang.

Trengt litt tid!

Young, and promising. Available already, but I’ll let my remaining bottles rest for at least five years.

Excellent

Priorat er et område som leverer svært ulike viner. Det er mange viner med stor konsentrasjon, mye fatpreg og høy alkohol som blir helt interessant for meg.mange viner er også høyt priset. I kveld ble det prøvd en ny; Nita Priorat 2015 fra Meritxell Calleja som nettopp ble lansert på polet. Superfin, ung, tilgjengelig, billig (kr 199) og med lagringspotensiale. Den har fått god omtale rundt omkring også. Vi drakk den til lammecarré, ovnsbakte rotgrønnsaker og Contadino olivenolje fra Frank Cornelissen på Etna som «saus». Super match!

Mørk rødlilla. Kjølig aroma av mørk frukt, lakris, krydder, lær og et lett jordlig og mineralsk preg. Middels fyldig+ med fin syre og diskrete, men faste tanniner. Fruktig meg god konsentrasjon og fin struktur. God lengde med et lite streif av bitterhet I avslutningen. Veldig fin Priorat som viser frem jordsmonn og frukt på en god måte. Ingen eik her, kun stål og sementtanker. Stor takk til Chris Grennes som har vært med på å få denne inn I kongeriket.

Wow, just stunning. Still youthful, but available with decant.

Closed on the nose at first. But opening up after decant. Dense, concentrated and structured wine with mouth filling texture. Enormous length.

Bravissimo!

App: dark purple
Aroma: a bit closed, but after a while powerful dark fruit, leather, spice, tobacco
Full-bodied with excellent acidity and firm tannins. Great structure. Concentrated with powerful fruit also on the palate and slightly thick texture, but still elegant.

Still very young, do decant. It needed at least two hours in the decanter to come together. But then drinks nicely. But this wine has a long life in front of it.

Drink up!

Always a winner in my book. Fresh, fruity, juicy, lingering and with a backbone too. Medium-bodied with extremely clean cherry fruit, excellent acidity and discrete but supporting tannins. Nice structure. Textbook Barbera.

Perfectly matured CCR. Still some primary fruit left, nicely balanced with more mature notes. After two hours it’s perfect, and the bottle is of course empty. Since my previous bottle was tired and a bit off, I didn’t decant. This bottle was perfect, and should have been decanted.
