    August 17, 2019 - The long cork was almost completely soaked. The wine was medium to dark garnet in colour and threw some fine sediment. Red fruit, dried herbs, spices, tobacco, hints of chocolate and coffee as well as an earthy component. Mineral, with fresh acidity, fine, mostly resolved tannin, and superb length. Medium-bodied. Not the most complex wine, but dense and well balanced. Elegant, almost a little aristocratic.

    On day one I thought the wine to be very good, but lacking the extra dimension to spark fireworks and justify the price. I saved a glass for the next day and had it slightly chilled at 15 to 16 degrees Celsius and the wine was even more elegant, with even finer tannin and even better length, plus more mature Grenache sweetness. Based on this experience, I recommend decanting the wine the day before and serving it slightly chilled. Scored for day two.

    February 25, 2019 - 1.5 - 2hr decant. It smelt dead initially but it eventually started to show it still had some life left in it. Dried plum, blackberry, and cherry. Decomposing flowers, old leather and scorched earth. It had become pretty and delicate. 2 words not often used to describe Priorat. Tannin and oak fully dissolved into the wine and the length was good. It did keep improving the longer it was open and in hindsight I should have decanted for much longer. But there is no denying its best days are well behind it now.

    July 23, 2013 - Will improve with cellar time but very impressive win. Dark dark fruits with balanced oak hints to round out the tannins made for very impressive balanc, polish, length and sensuous wine. Enjoyed at Racione with PV Spain group. Incredible night!

    August 16, 2010 - At its peak and drinking beautifully. Lots of ripe fruit on the palate (plum, black cherries). Still has a couple of years left at this level.
