There is tangibly great tension and poise here, with filigree tannins all the way to the finish. There is a ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Producer Daphne Glorian discovered forgotten hillsides in Priorat that were originally terraced by the Ancient Greeks. She now makes miniscule quantities of her Priorat wine, Clos Erasmus here. Rich and perfumed, with an intense underlying mineral intensity, this wine will blow you away.

Opaque dark purple hue. Full-bodied. Highly extracted. Quite tannic. Earth, black fruits. Complex, earthy, woody aromas follow through on a solid, well-extracted mouthful of dry flavors, with drying tannins clamping on the finish. An underlying sense of mineral gives this an extra dimension.

The 1990 boasts a terrific color, adds a chocolate note to the aforementioned aromatics, great richness and ripeness, a dense, opulent palate, and a lush, viscous, full-bodied personality. There is undoubtedly tannin concealed beneath all the fruit, but this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15+ years. Given the fact that three of Spain's hottest new wines have emanated from the steep, terraced hillsides of Priorto - Clos Mogador, Clos d'Orlac, and now Clos Erasmus - it is only a matter of time before the world's wine connoisseurs begin beating a path to this remote, rugged region of northeastern Spain.

A rare and outstanding Cabernet/Merlot blend from high in the mountains of Spain's Catalonia region. Steep slopes and volcanic soil contribute to uncommonly low yielding grape vines that produce intensely concentrated fruit. Painstakingly harvested by hand and aged in new French oak, this is exceptional red wine - rare and delicious.

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Josh Raynolds (Int'l Wine Cellar): Opaque ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of black raspberry, redcurrant, Asian spices and incense, with slow-building floral and mineral qualities. Sweet, concentrated and polished, with silky texture and noteworthy intensity to its sappy red fruit and violet pastille flavors. Finishes sweet, spicy and extremely long, with relentless flavors of red berries, minerals and candied flowers. This wine's blend of power and finesse is something else. (Sep 2012)
