2005 Genium Celler "Ecologic" Priorat

SKU #1053969

95 points Wines & Spirts: "Grown on 7.4 acres of organically farmed vineyards, Ecologic delivers surprising complexity for a young wine. The blind is primarily Garnacha (50 percent) with Merlot, Syrah, and Carinena. Tense blackberry and red fruit flavors run through the wine, highlighted by aromas of smoked meat, leather, and a light floral touch. The juicy texture is wrapped in slatey, schisty tannin, approachable now but well worth aging." 91 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC: "Ruby-red. Complex aromas of fresh red fruits, smoked meat, minerals and baking spices are reminiscent of cool-site syrah. Lively and precise, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors and striking mineral lift and cut. Clean, energetic wine with impressive clarity and length." 90+ points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...Purple-colored with a complex aromatic array of toast, smoke, mineral, game, black cherry and blueberry. Smooth-textured, sweetly-fruited, ripe, and balanced, the wine has excellent depth and length and should reveal its full potential over the next 2-3 years. Enjoy it through 2020." Genium's organically-produced wine is always among the best in Priorat, accessible but evocative of the rugged, steep, intensely difficult-to-cultivate slate vineyards. Full of fruit but terrific minerality as well. Though the year is young, I would not be surprised if this will be our best deal in collectible Priorat we are likely to see. (Joe M, K&L)
