Costers del Siurana Grenache Blend Priorat Miserere 1994

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The 1994 Miserere, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, Merlot and Carinena blend, exhibits the modern international style that is so popular in Italyandrsquo;s Tuscany and Piedmont sections, as well as Spain. Plenty of sweet, spicy, new French oak and black currant notes are followed by a dark ruby/purple-colored, elegant wine with excellent richness, fine purity and balance, and a clean, stylish, structured winemaking style. It should drink well for 5andndash;7 years. This well-made wine from one of Spainandrsquo;s most exciting viticultural areas, Priorato, is worth a search of the marketplace.

Costers del Siurana:
Two decades ago with the foundation of this cellar and the creation of these Wines, Charles Pastrana and Mariona Jarque commited themselves to a renaissance of the D.O. Priorat in a land with more than thousand years of wine making tradition, where the order of Saint Bruno founded in 1149 the first carthusian monastery of the Iberic Peninsula which was the cultural, social and economic center of the region.

Though relatively light in body for the appellation, this punchy red shares the regionandrsquo;s bright blueberry, brambly and vanilla flavors, fresh and well defined. A good match for grilled meats. Drink now through 2005.

I hope readers have been taking my advice and searching out the spectacular, limited quantity wines produced on the sun-drenched, steep terraced vineyards of Priorat. There are several hundred cases of the 1995 Miserere, an estate-bottled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, Merlot, and Carignan. This wine may merit a 90-point score after a few more months in bottle. It exhibits a dense, ruby/purple color, and a pure, earthy, peppery, blackberry, and cassis-scented nose with nicely integrated toasty oak. The wine is powerful and full-bodied on the palate, with a lot of guts, glycerin, and extract. This is an impressively made wine that needs another 2ndash;3 years of cellaring; it should keep for 12ndash;15 years.

Recognized by the Spanish press as one of the countryandrsquo;s great wines. A blend of Garnacha, Cabernet, Tempranillo, Merlot and Carinena; highly structured, complex and rich. Aged in French oak and unfiltered, this blockbuster can be cellared, or enjoyed now for its youthful and welcome fruit.
