Added Jul 25, 2009 at 7:25pmWhat can I say. I bought two cases of this wine at Costco; I should have bought four or five. For the price, this is a splendid zin; it would be that at three or four times the cost. It's not quite in the "great" range; staying power is suspect, which is true of a lot of zinfandels -- they're bred for relatively quick consumption. I actively looked for this wine when I was running out, and remain disappointed that I couldn't find it at retail or straight from Cameron Hughes, which increasingly strikes me as one of the great negociants around. Well done ... and I'll miss this one.

Added Jul 25, 2009 at 7:18pmA nice leggy Priorat with staying power (after five years) with depth and authority. In many way, this is in the classic mode of Cataluña, a little terse but also reflective of sense of self.
