2012 Mas d'en Compte "Black Slate - Porrera" Priorat

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of Priorat’s coolest micro-climates, this 2012 Black Slate is composed of 60% old vine Grenache (60+ years) and 40% old Carignan (80 years), and aged 12 months in concrete tanks, old wood foudres, and two-year-old barrels. It reveals lots of licorice, crushed wet rock, sweet blueberry and black raspberry fruit characteristics along with a full-bodied, moderately tannic mouthfeel. The tannins are sweet and well-integrated, and the wine is drinking beautifully already. For a relatively expensive Spanish appellation, this is an outright steal! Cons ...Read More »

2012 Noster "Inicial" Priorat

Here is a Priorat that is not at all shy or trying to hide its Mediterranean origins, a richer, fuller bodied style especially considering its modest price. This is on the darker-fruited side, generous and slightly savory, a well-balanced, tasty blend of Garnacha, Carignane, and just a tiny amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Try this with your favorite recipe for braised or stewed lamb. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

2013 Alvaro Palacios "Les Terrasses" Priorat

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Les Terrasses Velles Vinyes, from a rainy year and a late harvest that resulted in perfect ripeness and low yields, is a blend of 55% Garnacha and 45% Cariñena. You might find labels and literature referring Cariñena to as Samsó, something that is wrong and creates confusion since Samsó is the Catalan name for Cinsault. The grapes are sourced from different villages (Gratallops, La Vilella Baixa, Bellmunt, El Lloar, El Molar, Porrera, Scala Dei, Torroja and Poboleda) all of them grown on schist llicorella soils, fermented in a combination of oak ...Read More »

2012 Clos Mogador Priorat (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Clos Mogador is nothing short of spectacular. They started in 1999 with some Cariñena, and they gradually increased the Garnacha and reduced the Cabernet. 2012 is possibly the vintage of Mogador with less Cabernet, as it didn't behave well in such warm year. René Barbier senior tells me it reminds him of the freshness of the 2000 that he generously uncorked for me to compare; they only have a handful of bottles for the old vintages! The nose of this 2012 is still little reticent but not reduced like many vintages in the past, slowly showing a gr ...Read More »

2009 Nin Ortiz "Planetes" Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Familia Nin-Ortiz’s 2009 Planetes de Nin is sourced from a contiguous 11 acre parcel all planted on llicorella and farmed biodynamically. The wine is made up of 70% Garnacha and 30% Carignan aged in foudre. It is purple in color with an intriguing nose of dates and figs (reminiscent of a Fig Newton) as well as mineral, lavender, and black cherry. On the palate it reveals an elegant, racy personality with enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years. It is approachable now and will continue to provide pleasure through 2021." (5/2011) K&L Notes: Based in Porrera, Nin Ortiz... Read More »

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

Alvaro Palacios is undoubtedly one of the architects and primary reasons for Priorat's elevation to premier fine wine region over the past 20 years. While it has certainly not always been a smooth ride for the region, Palacios' wines have garnered a following in Spain and abroad, amongst critics and collectors, for their generous fruit, polished tannin structure, and minerality. Camins is the winery's softer, entry level Priorat where the Garnacha and Cariñena base is supported by Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot. An ideal, fruit forward red to enjoy on its ow... Read More »

2010 Nin Ortiz "Planetes" Priorat New!
2010 Nin Ortiz "Planetes" Priorat

Based in Porrera, Nin Ortiz is seen by many as possibly the most exciting of Priorat's third wave, nipping on the heals of pioneers such as Clos Mogador, Mas Martinet, Alvaro Palacios and Clos Erasmus. In fact, Ester Nin still manages the vineyards at Clos Erasmus. She and her partner Carles Ortiz employ biodynamic practices in their vineyards, all located in Porrera. They are of the school of thought that favors a blend of Garnacha and Cariñena, without any foreign grape varieties included in the blend. 2010 was a very good vintage in Priorat, and one ...

2009 Mas Martinet "Degustacio" Priorat

Mas Martinet's Sara Perez has quietly been at the forefront of Priorat's recent transformation. She was one of the earlier producers to recognize that these intensely flavored, Mediterranean reds do not need much in the way of ageing in new barrels, or fussing around in the cellar to create higher impact, more extracted wines. Rather, her wines underscore Priorat's terroir and show the focused, lovely fruit that it has to offer. In the "Degustació" bottling, juicy, generous mixed berry fruit flavors here beautifully show the quality of Sara Perez' Cariny... Read More »

2012 Bodega La Cartuja Priorat

La Cartuja is produced from 70% Garnacha and 30% Cariñena. Spicy black fruits on the nose show hints of earth and graphite as well – expressive yet surprisingly discreet aromas for this Mediterranean wine region. I would guess that this is due to a gentler, slightly cooler vintage than normal in 2012. On the palate, there are mixed berries and black fruits on the attack, which show very good presence on the mid-palate and give way to lovely minerality as well. If truly representative, delicious Priorat for under $15 is at all intriguing to you, then this... Read More »

2008 Clos Mogador Priorat

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Three recent vintages bought us up to date. The 2008 Clos Mogador has a very fine bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and violet with great delineation and poise. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy, coarse tannins that neatly juxtapose the core of sweet dark fruit. With impressive tension and poise, this is an excellent Priorat for long-term aging. Drink 2014-2022+. (NM)" (4/2012)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple. Explosive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, cola, incense and potpourri, with smoke and mineral overtones. Deeply pitched black raspberry and ch ...Read More »

2002 Vall Llach, Priorat

93 points Robert Parker! He says, "The estate's flagship wine, the 2002 Vall Llach, is a blend of 50% old vine Carignan, 35% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lovely aromas of crushed blueberries, minerals, high class smoky oak, and acacia flowers. It possesses medium body, wonderful sweetness, beautiful fruit, and nicely integrated acidity and tannin. Consume it over the next 5-7 years. (6/30/2005)"

1999 A. Palacios "L'Ermita" Priorat (1.5L)

94 points Wine Spectator: "*Cellar Selection* This big red draws you in with flavors of coffee, plum, blackberry and tobacco, then turns powerful on the palate, with muscular tannins and plenty of extract. It needs some time in the bottle, but will sing when it's tamed." (9/2002) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Reduced, musky aromas of raspberry, currant, mocha, menthol and game. Chewy and ripe, with excellent structure and acidity but less sheer density than the '98. Intensely flavored but not yet expressive. The tannins here come across as chewier and a bit tougher as there's not quite as much bu ...Read More »
