A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2010 Clos Erasmus 750ml
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.
A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2006 Clos Erasmus 750ml
As usual Clos Erasmus is one of Spain's finest wines. The 2006 Clos Erasmus offers an ethereal bouquet of balsam and sandalwood, incense, liquid mineral, black cherry, and black raspberry. Dense, rich, and voluptuous on the palate, it has plenty of well-concealed ripe tannin, and potential complexity. Give it 5-7 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2015 to 2025. As great as it is, it is not quite as complete as the 2004 and 2005 vintages.
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.
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)
