    BEST BUY. Ruby color. Aromas of mocha yogurt, toasted chocolate berry pastry, and sweet herbs and spices with a silky, lively, fruity medium body and an engaging, medium-long pomegranate gelato and sour cherry sorbet finish with silky tannins and light oak. A juicy, delicious, resonant, red that will cover a lot of bases. Drink now through 2017.

    Notes

    Appearance: Red cherry in color with bluish hues that denote its youth.

    Aroma & Flavor: A fresh aroma of ripe red berries with underlying mineral hints from the licorella terrior. Red berries reappear on the palate (bilberry and red currant) with a pleasant mouthfeel.

    Facts

    Alcohol: 14%

    Barrel Type: No barrel aging.

    The 2013 vintage was a complex vintage to manage. It did not rain throughout the whole summer and the harvest ended one week earlier than usual. These drought conditions yielded very good quality on the more vigorous vineyards, and caused greater stress on the south-facing vineyards. In the end, this yielded wines with highly concentrated fruit and aromas.

    Tasting Notes

    This vintage rendered a concentrated wine, evident in the color, aromas and flavors. Deep red colors with a bluish rim denotes its vigor. Aromas of ripe red fruits, compliment a round, ample palate and tempered with the typical mineral notes from the Priorat's licorella soils.
