All of the fruit for this wine is grown in and around Gratallops, where there tend to be warmer daytime temperatures than more northerly subregions of Priorat. Vines range in age from 10 years for the Syrah to 50 years for the Cariñena. Grapes were hand harvested in the middle of September. Varieties were fermented separately with a total of 22 days on skins prior to pressing. Aged 6 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy berry and licorice aromas are composed, lightly oaked and attractive. This standard Priorato blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah is fresh feeling, with a bolt of bracing acidity. Juicy plum and raspberry flavors finish loamy, earthy and balanced. For a wine that's no heavyweight, this is strong throughout. Drink through 2018.
