2014 Black Slate "Escala Dei" Vi de la Vila Priorat

An elegant blend of Grenache and Carignane from vines up to 100 years old, grown in the foothills of the Montsant mountains. Wine Advocate on this exciting project from importer Eric Solomon: "Black Slate is a project from US importer Eric Solomon who works with different producers across Priorat to create a range of wines that show the character of the different Priorat villages at affordable prices. Each wine belongs to the winery that produces it and they are all village wines that carry the name of the village.... La Conreria de Scala Dei produces a ... Read More »

2011 Cal Batlett "d'Iatra" Gratallops Priorat Top Pick!
2011 Cal Batlett "d'Iatra" Gratallops Priorat

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely amazing wine from vineyards near the Priorat village of Gratallops, which is in the heart of Priorat. This 2011 D'Iatra is made from 44% Carignan, 36% Grenache, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Syrah aged 12 months in French oak. All the vines are farmed biodynamically and range in age from 60 to 80 years. The wine is a beauty, dense ruby/purple color with notes of raspberry jam mixed with notes of kirsch and blacker fruits. It has fresh acids, crushed rock minerality and floral notes make for sensational and complex fragrant introduction. Once ...Read More »

2013 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 Mas d'En Compte Priorat Top Pick!
2013 Mas d'En Compte Priorat

Seventh generation winemaker Joan Sangenis has found an incredible niche in the village of Porrera, one of the eleven villages within the Priorat D.O. Making wine here since 1875, the Sangenis are one of the oldest grower families in the region, literally producing wines from vines planted by Joan's great grandfather. Mas d'En Compte is one of the few revered Catalan properties whose wines are actually consumed in other regions of Spain.

2013 Clos Erasmus "Laurel" Priorat

93 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Heady, mineral-laced aromas of candied red fruit, Indian spices and rose pastille. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness and spiciness in the glass. Packs a powerful punch but comes off lithe and precise, with alluring sweetness and a touch of candied rose on the gently tannic finish. This suave wine was aged in a combination of French oak tanks, barrels and clay amphoras for 18 months. (JR)" (1/2016)

2014 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 »

2014 Mas Doix "Les Crestes" Priorat

92 points Vinous: "(aged in used French oak barrels for ten months): Youthful purple. Potent, mineral-accented dark berry and violet scents, with suggestions of woodsmoke and spicecake emerging slowly. The sweet and penetrating palate offers juicy blueberry and cherry pie flavors, along with an enlivening, zesty acidity. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with excellent thrust and smooth, slow tannins that contribute shape and grip. (JR)" (1/2016) K&L Notes: Located way up in the village of Poboleda, on of the last villages before one reaches the Sierra Natural de Montsant, Mas Doix ... Read More »

2015 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

Wine Spectator: "This supple red has good energy, with vibrant acidity fueling the bright berry and cherry fruit. Fresh herb and vanilla accents add interest. Graceful and alluring." (10/2016) K&L Notes: 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.

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Finca Dofi" Priorat

96 points James Suckling: "Subtle nose of dried rose petals, slate and hints of red cherries. Full body, a beautiful structure and a dense and harmonious texture. Single vineyard. So delicious now. Why wait?" (12/2016) K&L Notes: While 2013 set the bar very high indeed (The Wine Advocate called it the best ever Finca Dofi) I had the opportunity to taste a barrel sample of the 2014 Finca Dofi in the summer of 2015. It was phenomenal: the epitome of what makes today's best Priorats so delicious, with intense wild blackberries, compelling minerality and engaging acidity. A wonderful young Finca D...

2013 Bodegas Mas Alta "Artigas" Priorat

This is a joint venture by three vinous powerhouses: Rhône négociant Michel Tardieu, his winemaker Philippe Cambie, and importer Eric Solomon. Though the 2013 has yet to be professionally reviewed, the 2012 earned praise from Wine Spectator: "Tar and dried herb flavors mingle with cherry and roasted plum notes in this lean and firm red. Despite grippy tannins, fresh acidity keeps the finish lively." (Web Only—2015)

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Les Terrasses" Priorat

Produced from a blend of Garnacha (55%) and Cariñena (45%), most of which is purchased from high quality fruit sources in various villages of Priorat, this is an excellent vintage of Les Terrases. Ripe and clean red fruit aromas are punctuated by notes of fennel pollen. More red fruits on the palate show a touch of licorice, lots of freshness and satisfying, subtle bitter notes towards the finish. This is Priorat! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

2014 Scala Dei "Prior" Priorat

Luis Gutierrez had this to say about Scala Dei: "Scala Dei keeps improving their wines...I had a revealing visit to the Sant Antoni and Mas Deu vineyards at 600 and 650 meters altitude, above the Scala Dei Monastery overlooking the whole of Priorat. Both are on clay and chalk soils, very different for the predominant slate soils of Priorat."

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Gratallops" Priorat

This is Alvaro Palacios' single village Priorat, all from vineyards in Gratallops. In the cooler, fresher 2014 vintage, it is a fantastic wine, one which shows more dark fruited intensity than the Les Terrasses, but also greater concentration and a higher perceived acidity as well which combine to create a real tightrope act - in liquid form! A fantastic example of the quality of wines at this iconic producer, as well as the very high caliber of the 2014 vintage.

2013 Nin Ortiz "Planetes" Garnatxes i Carinyenes em Amfora Priorat

The juicy, focused and pure palate reveals intense red fruit preserves and spicecake flavors, with a deepening bitter chocolate note. Palate-staining, but lithe and graceful, with no excess weight. Fine-grained tannins give shape and late grip to the sweet, floral and very long finish.

2010 Mas Martinet "Els Escurcons" Priorat

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Els Escurcons is pure Garnacha (since 2008) from a 600-meter altitude vineyard planted in 1999. Part of the wine aged in terracotta amphorae, which is the way to go for this wine in the future (100% since 2012, but in 2010 there was only one amphora and seven oak barrels). The nose has more red fruit than black, with notes of blood orange and licorice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, lively acidity and freshness. It is both ripe and fragile, with good freshness. Drink 2014-2020. (LG)" (2/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(All Garnacha, aged in a combin ...Read More »

2002 A. Palacios "L'Ermita" Priorat

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full medium ruby. Deep, brooding, sappy aromas of black raspberry, maraschino cherry, dark chocolate, menthol and pepper. A huge, creamy, seamless wine with remarkably deep flavors of black fruits and minerals and nothing cooked about it. Wonderfully dense, broad wine that offers exceptional palate coverage. Finishes with outstanding length and noble, superfine tannins. The yield here was reportedly less than eight hectoliters per hectare. (ST)" (9/2005)

2001 A. Palacios "L'Ermita" Priorat

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship offering, the 2001 l’Ermita, is produced from 60-year old, head-pruned Grenache (85%) vines and 15% old vine Carignan and younger vine Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were a meager 15 hectoliters per hectare in 2001. This 500-case cuvee, aged in 100% new French oak, represents the essence of Priorat as well as this particular vineyard source. Alvaro Palacios practices malolactic fermentation in barrel, and bottling after an egg white fining and no filtration. The black/purple-colored 2001 boasts an extraordinary aromatic profile of charcoal, blac ...Read More »

2006 Melis "Elix" Priorat

About the wine: "Elix, will bring to the pleasure to the unique flavor of the small and exclusive region of Priorat. In addition to a vineyard sorting, clusters were hand-sorted in the winery, gently destemmed and crushed directly to two ton stainless open-top tanks and 600L barrels for fermentation. Jack-stems were removed by hand. Most lots were cold soaked for two days. Fermentations were started slowly, with punchdowns by hand occurring one to two times a day; macerations lasted from 10 to 21 days, depending on the individual lot. At the completion o...

2013 Terroir al Limit "Terra de Cuques" Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The third edition of this white, 2013 Terra de Cuques, comes from a late vintage when the grapes had the chance to ripen slowly and perfectly in a very long harvest (from the end of August until the second half of November!). It is a blend of Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel from chalk and slate soils respectively. This wine has definitively grown up in this vintage and feels more serious and mineral than previous editions. As most, if not all wines here, it fermented with full-clusters and indigenous yeasts and the wine matured in tank for 18 months before bo ...Read More »

There was a volatile whiff and that sensation of warm slate that really transported me to the character of the roads in Priorat. There's also something that made me think of iron and raw meat.

The 2004 L’Ermita is harvested from a 5 acre parcel of 70-year-old head-pruned vines of which 85% is Grenache, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Carignan aged in 100% new French oak. The color is purple/black and the super-expressive nose offers toast, minerals, kirsch, and blackberry. The wine is full-bodied and seamless with complex flavors and the tannin totally concealed.

2014 Terroir al Limit "Torroja" Priorat (1.5L)

Based in the village of Torroja, Terroir al Limit represents the vanguard in a newly energized Priorat. Proprietor Dominik Huber produces bright, expressive, mineral-drenched wines that are powerful and representative of Priorat, yet somehow altogether something different due to their acidity and relatively lighter, more tense style. These are wines made from grapes picked on the earlier side, that are fermented with whole clusters and then allowed to age in concrete and/or foudres - unlike many others in the region Terroir al Limit prefers these vessels...

2013 Terroir al Limit "Pedra de Guix" Priorat

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pedra de Guix is a blend of the same amount of Garnacha Blanca on slate from Poboleda, Pedro Ximenez on clay from Lloar and very old Macabeo on stony soils from Torroja. It's low in alcohol and high-ish in acidity. The must was fermented in 500-liter oak barrels separately with indigenous yeasts after a direct pressing of the bunches, and was kept in those same 500-liter oak barrels for one year, then was blended and put in foudre for a further year. The result is obviously a slight (intentional) oxidative style. There is a note of honeycomb and ...Read More »
