1999 A. Palacios "L'Ermita" Priorat

SKU #1241681 94 points Wine Spectator

 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. Best after 2003. (TM)  (9/2002)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated deep bright ruby. Wild, slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate, smoked meat and tar; shows a porty nuance without coming across at all raisiny. Very dense and thick but sappy and vibrant, with highly complex fruit, game and torrefaction flavors and a complicating suggestion of gun metal. Offers uncanny depth for the year, and terrific finishing flavor. Seems riper and sweeter today than a barrel sample I tried a year ago. (ST)  (11/2001)
