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 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!"

(9/2015) "Fresh and focused, this firm red delivers bright cherry and wild berry fruit, with floral, citrus and mineral notes. Harmonious to the point of seeming simple, but the elegance masks impressive depth and intensity. Exhibits power with grace. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases imported."

Terroir al Limit "Historic" Priorat Blanc 2015

91 Wine Advocate
(10/2016) "The new white 2015 Terroir Históric is a blend of 75% Garnacha Blanca and 25 % Macabeo from organically-farmed vineyards across different villages of Priorat, mostly on llicorella slate soils. It fermented with indigenous yeasts after a direct pressing of the bunches and matured in cement tanks for six months. The wine is fermented with whole clusters, so it's a bit of an "orange" character, with structure and tannin, much more serious, showing the naked character of Garnacha Blanca, which to me dominates over the Macabeo (known as Viura in Rioja). The blend represents approximately the percentages found of the two white grapes in Priorat. The wine really represents Priorat. And I love these classical labels... There are 6,000 bottles produced."

Terroir al Limit "Historic" Priorat 2015

90+ Wine Advocate
(10/2016) "Same as the white, there is also a red 2015 Terroir Históric, in this case a blend of 75% Garnacha and the rest Cariñena, sourced from different villages, mostly from llicorella soils. The full clusters fermented with indigenous yeasts and it also matured in cement for six months before bottling. The 2015 vintage was a warm, ripe vintage, and the wine is round and with moderate acidity. The character is quite reductive, so the wine needs air. "I had a bottle that was open for two days, and it was fantastic," Dominik Huber told me. But it's not a nasty reduction, in fact it's quite pleasant, because it's a mineral reduction, if you know what I mean. It makes me think of flint stone and something smoky even. The wine is light "and digestible," added Dominik. "If I open one of my wines at home, it's an Históric." Quite light, as if it was a Gamay from Priorat. 6,000 bottles were filled in April 2016. The idea here is to have serious growth. "Let's see how the market moves, but I can do up to 100,000 bottle of this, but perhaps the limit the market takes is 50,000. We'll see..."

(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!

Bodegas Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat 2012

Black Slate is back!
90+ Our Score

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(9/2014) "(60% garnatxa, 35% carinena and 5% cabernet sauvignon; aged in French oak, 60% of it new): Saturated ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of dark berry liqueur, licorice, violet and Indian spices. A zesty mineral nuance adds cut and lift to plush blackberry and cassis flavors, which become sweeter with air. Quite lively for its heft, finishing with strong thrust and smooth, slowly building tannins that add grip."

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."
