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."

Bodegas Valdespino "Cardenal" Palo Cortado VORS NV

99 Wine Advocate
(8/2013) ?The NV Palo Cortado Cardenal VORS, like the whole VORS collection from Valdespino is outstanding. It is fed from the solera of the Palo Cortado C.P. where the Palomino grapes come from the Macharnudo Alto vineyard, fermented in American oak botas. It's 22% alcohol and has nine grams of (undetectable) residual sugar which makes it very drinkable. It's a monumental wine of dark mahogany color with a green edge, a complex, ever-changing, concentrated, clean and delineated nose of spices, dark chocolate, Cuban cigar and balsamic notes of incense, and a sharp, saline palate. It is highly concentrated, powerful and clean, with an eternal, lingering aftertaste. Deciding between Coliseo and Cardenal might be splitting hairs, and as much as I love Coliseo, I felt Cardenal was just one notch above. At the quality helm of Palo Cortado. Drink 2013-2025. ?

Bodegas Tradicion Pedro Ximenez Sherry NV

92 Wine Advocate
(8/2013) "The NV Tradicion Pedro Ximenez 20 anos VOS, produced from Pedro Ximenez grapes and aged in a solera for an average of 23-25 years (which was originally purchased from Domecq & Harveys), is bottled 'young' to preserve the character of the grapes and make it more drinkable. The alcohol is also kept at the allowed minimum of 15%. It lacks the rancio notes of others, and is looking for the balance between age and fruit, raisins, dates, dried plums, cappuccino coffee, and licorice while following the clean and precise profile of all the wines they produce. The palate is equally balanced and elegant. This little monster has around 420 grams of sugar, and should be served at 12-14 C. The wine gets more focused with a little time in the glass. Drink 2013-2018."

95 Wine Spectator
(7/31/2016) "This powerful red delivers cassis, blackberry and garrigue flavors, framed by espresso, tar and mineral notes, well-integrated and supported by muscular tannins and balsamic acidity. Dense but lively, with floral and mineral accents on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2031. 200 cases made."

Familia Nin-Ortiz Planetes de Nin Priorat 2010

92 International Wine Cellar
"(70% garnacha and 30% carinena, from a five-hectare vineyard that produces enough grapes to make about 100 cases of wine; aged for 15 months in large French oak): Vivid ruby. Highly perfumed, seductive aromas of fresh red berries, minerals, lavender, blood orange and Asian spices. Sappy raspberry and cherry flavors show impressive depth and intensity, along with a slow-mounting floral quality. Strikingly pure and energetic wine with excellent finishing cut and spicy persistence." (Spain)

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!"

Descendientes des Palacios "Villa de Corullon" Bierzo 2012

95 Wine Advocate
(1/2015) "The 2012 Corullón is very fresh and aromatic, with citric aromas, very subtle, like an amplified version of Pétalos, more fragrant and fresh than Moncerbal, really open and accessible, changing by the minute, with faint notes of underbrush and captivating hints of bitter almonds and fennel. The palate is medium-bodied, very accessible, silky, with velvety tannins and good acidity. This is approachable now, but with it's balance, freshness and weight, it should age effortlessly and with class. I'm also tempted to say that this is the best Corullón to date. Drink: 2015 - 2022."

Cellar Can Blau 'Mas de Can Blau" Montsant 2010

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
91 Wine Spectator
92 Wine Enthusiast
(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."
