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."

Mas d'En Compte "Black Slate" Porrera Priorat 2014

92 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "Part of the collection from different villages from Priorat, Cellar Cal Pla produced a 2014 Black Slate Porrera, which is a blend of 50% Garnacha with 40% Cariñena and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a village wine from 20- to 30-year-old vines on slate soils fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels (80% French oak, 20% Hungarian) for one year. The nose is beautiful, combining violets, a hint of beef blood, something ashy and an organic, soil note, developing a smoky bacon twist with time in the glass. The palate shows good integration of the oak, better than in the majority of wines from this winery. Beautiful flowers appear with time and made me go back to the glass again and again. Drink Date: 2016 - 2020."

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(11/2015) "Brilliant ruby. Spice-accented aromas of black raspberry, cola and smoky minerals , along with a suave floral overtone. Silky and open-knit, offering sweet red berry flavors and suggestions of five-spice powder and candied rose. Finishes with bright, tangy lift, strong cut and very good persistence, leaving a juicy red berry quality behind. Drinking window: 2017 - 2023."

Bodegas Cepa 21 "Hito" Ribera del Duero 2014

90 Our Score
90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2015) "Bright purple. Lively and spicy on the incisive nose, displaying intense black and blue fruit and floral scents and a hint of minerality. Silky and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and berry skin flavors that deepen slowly with aeration. Closes silky and long, with gentle tannins adding shape and grip. This elegant wine drinks surprisingly well now after being open for an hour or so."

Espelt "Old Vines" Emporda Garnacha 2015

90 Our Score
(3/2017) Our favorite value Garnacha from the northeast corner of Spain is back and it is super delicious! Purply-pink in the glass, the vines for this wine average 95 years in age and are certified organic. Very fresh with a lifted grapey beginning, the wine is deeper than initially suspected, with dark red berry fruit and medium tannins. Winemaker Anna Espelt has delivered another outrageous value.
