2013 Celler Cecilio "Negre" Priorat Top Pick!
2013 Celler Cecilio "Negre" Priorat

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another unbelievable wine from 65-year-old vines planted in the schist soils of this area of Priorat. The 2013 Gratallops shows sensational aromatics of spring flowers, licorice, crushed rock, black currants and blackberry notes that all soar from the glass of this lush, seamlessly constructed full-bodied, opulent wine that is just a mind-boggling effort. It is a blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carignan and 10% Syrah aged six months in barrel, as well as concrete tanks. Purity and presence of this wine in its aromatics and flavors are ...Read More »

2013 Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat Top Pick!
2013 Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a joint venture between famed Rhône négociant Michel Tardieu, his oenologist Philippe Cambie and importer Eric Solomon. From the area of Priorat known as the Vilella Alta, these are high-density vineyards planted more than 1,000 feet above sea level. The vines average between 15 to 60 years old. The final blend of the 2013 Black Slate is 60% Grenache, 35% Carignan and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, all aged for one year in French oak (60% new and 40% one-year-old). The color is inky/bluish/purple. The wine offers up notes of blueberry and blackberry liqu ...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)

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 »

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This ultra young, jovial wine is a commercial success in the thirsty local restaurant market. It is really affordable too, considering that it bears the signature of Álvaro Palacios. It is bottled at different phases, released already because 2012 and 2013 were short vintages, and this lot is the first bottling with around four months in barrel; the last lot is kept in large oak and cement vats so all lots are more or less four months in barrels. Ripe, juicy and somewhat balsamic, it shows a Priorat character that is highly drinkable with fine tannins an ...Read More »

2012 Bodega La Cartuja Priorat

Wine Spectator: "Supple, yet with a tensile strength, this red delivers cherry, berry, spice and mountain herb flavors. The wine stays harmonious through the mineral finish. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made" (12/2014) K&L Notes: 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 f... Read More »

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 »

2013 Alvaro Palacios "Finca Dofi" Priorat

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2011 was not an easy act to follow as it produced what probably was the best Dofí to date, yet the 2013 Finca Dofí is as good or even better! The single-vineyard 2013 Finca Dofí, made since 2011 with Garnacha and perhaps 5% Cariñena (previously made with Cabernet Sauvignon), was fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in barriques for 16 months after malolactic. They have achieved a level of sophistication in the élevage of this wine because it is completely different from the wines of, say, 2005 (or 1995!) that were hard and full of tan ...Read More »

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 Clos Mogador Priorat

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 »

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 ...

2013 Alvaro Palacios "Gratallops" Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled five days before my tasting in mid-February 2015, the 2013 Gratallops, their village wine, is a blend of 85% Garnacha and the rest Cariñena sourced from a number of named plots such as Ermites, La Baixada, Mas d'en Pallarès, Coll del Corral, Obagues, Manyetes, Sorts, Les Planes, Mas d'en Piqué and Carrerada. The grapes were destemmed, lightly pressed and fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. The wine went through malo and 16 months aging in oak barrels. It might be suffering a bit of bottle shock. In this vintage, the Garnacha was so rich ...Read More »

2004 Celler Cal Pla "Planots" Priorat New!
2004 Celler Cal Pla "Planots" Priorat

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Mas d’En Compte Planots is 50% Garnacha and 50% Carinena from 100+-year-old vines sourced from a single vineyard. The wine was aged for 16 months in new French oak. Inky purple, the wine has an extraordinary bouquet of damp earth, truffle, creme de cassis, and kirsch. Thick and opulent on the palate, this powerful effort is a pure pleasure machine. Already easy-to-drink, the wine has a well-concealed structure and superb balance. It should drink well for the next 10-12 years. (JM)" (2/2007) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This expressive red offers an alluring mix of coffee, kir ...Read More »
