Clos i Terrasses "Clos Erasmus" Priorat 2014

97 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "There is a little more Syrah in the blend of the 2014 Clos Erasmus, where it reached around 30% to complement the majority of Garnacha. As is the norm, the wine matured for some 18 months before bottling, with most of the volume in French oak barrels, 40% of which are renewed each vintage, but there are also one or two amphorae. I tasted it next to the 2013 and as the 2013 required so much attention, it took some time to get to the 2014. It showed a bit shy at first, but when I finally came back to it, I found that it had really blossomed with a mixture of violets, ground, smoky meat and black raspberries. The slight increase in Syrah was noticeable, but it somehow also seemed to increase the voice of the slate in the bottle. The palate is medium to full-bodied with wonderful balance and elegance combined with inner strength. This is simply terrific. 3,000 bottles were filled at the end of May 2016. Drink Date: 2016 - 2025."

Clos Erasmus "Laurel" Priorat 2010

92 International Wine Cellar
90 Wine Advocate
94 Rhone Report
"A mini Clos Erasmus (as it should be since it's a straight declassification from the grand vin), the 2010 Laurel is comprised of 75% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 16 months in a combination of larger wooden vat and smaller, 2-4 year old barrels. A serious, age-worthy wine in its own right, this beauty has classy, pure aromas of black cherry, spice-box, balsamic, and lead pencil along with a full-bodied, deep, concentration, yet gorgeously fresh palate. Seemingly more elegant and structured than previous vintages, this knockout effort finished with chalky minerality and blockbuster length. Give bottles another 2-3 years, and enjoy over the following decade."

Clos i Terrasses "Laurel" Priorat 2014

95 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "I was really blown away by the aromatics of the 2014 Laurel. As soon as I put my nose in the glass I was transported to the vineyards of Gratallops, with a blast of wild herbs and flowers followed by a stream of smoked meat, juicy red currants and raspberries. It is mostly Garnacha but with some 10% each Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are cooled down during the night and in the morning some are destemmed, and some others are left with the stems on and fermented mostly with indigenous yeasts. The élevage here is one year in a combination of used oak barrels, oak vats, cement and amphorae. They have increased the volume of wine being raised in amphorae in this 2014. This might very well be the finest Laurel to date. Simply stunning!"

Cellar Can Blau 'Mas de Can Blau" Montsant 2010

(2/1/2014) "Oaky, inky, modern and full of power, this Montsant blend of Carignan, Syrah and Garnacha is toasty and dark as night on the bouquet. The palate feels ripe and intense, with creamy oak and controlled tannins. Flavors of baked black fruits, cocoa and vanilla finish soft and supple, with just enough tannic grip and acidity to maintain focus. Drink from 2014-2020."

Celler Dosterras "Vespres" Montsant 2010

92 Our Score
94 Wine & Spirits
"The aroma of this wine is almost hallucinogenic, a wild mix of earth, blackberries and raspberries. The mouth is juicy, powered by the wine's fruit with eccentric little details of meatiness and earthiness that focus on its originality and distinction. Vespres is an old-vine blend of garnacha (80 percent) and mazuelo."

Mestres "Coquet" Gran Reserva Brut Nature Cava 2009

92 Our Score
(8/2015) Wow! What a great bottle of bubbly! The Cava house of Mestres is based in the village of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, right in the heart of the finest area for Cava in Penedès. This bone-dry sparkler spent 40 months on its lees. (Most Champagne spends only 15 months!) The blend is a traditional 40% Xarello, 30% Macabeo and 30% Parellada, some of which is aged in old chestnut barrels. With a wonderfully rich texture, precise acidity and flavors of honeyed, nutty orchard fruit, this serious bubbly could easily be mistaken for a $40 Champagne!

(9/2013) "Bright violet color. High-pitched red fruit and floral scents are complemented by bright mineral and white pepper qualities. Sweet and silky in texture, offering lively raspberry and rose pastille flavors and a hint of allspice. Closes smooth and long, with subtle tannins and a strong jolt of candied flowers."

Sao del Coster "S" Priorat 2013

92 Our Score
(10/2016) Sub-$25 Priorat is a rare treat and this one has us buzzing. A biodynamically farmed blend of 40% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 5% Merlot, the 2013 Sao del Coster "S" is a gorgeous wine. It starts out with full, ripe red fruit aromas and flavors followed by complex notes of purple flowers, licorice, balsamic and white pepper. The touch of minerality on the finish really elevates the entire experience. We paired this with oxtail stew and will never forget how perfect they went together!
