2006 Melis Priorat

SKU #1129500 91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Melis is 62% Garnacha 19% Carinena, and the balance Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 16 months in several sizes of French oak. It serves up a similar aromatic array but offers considerably more on the palate, Full-bodied and still tightly wound, it is dense, layered, and rich with gobs off savory black fruit and spice notes. It will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and have a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2026. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2009)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark ($85; 62% grenache, 19% carignane, 13% cabernet sauvignon and 6% syrah; 15.5% alcohol) Opaque purple. Darker fruits on the nose than the Elix, offering spicy boysenberry and cassis aromas, along with notes of sandalwood and potpourri. Open-knit, fleshy dark berry flavors are liqueur-like in density and provide excellent palate coverage. Clings impressively on the finish, which features mounting vanilla and oak spice elements. Very modern and drinkable now. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plum, fig, cocoa powder and cola flavors mingle in this broad, inviting red. Alluring oak notes don't overshadow the fruit and mineral character, and the firm tannins are balanced by crisp acidity. Drink now through 2014. Inner quote mark (4/2009)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A blend of garnacha (60 percent) with cariñena, cabernet and syrah, this is spicy up front with blackberry and black cherry flavors. It’s a Priorat tough, powerful and a bit unpolished, built for a generous cut of steak or to cellar at least five years. Inner quote mark (2/2012)
