Stand up and take note: this is great wine from Priorat. And that’s regardless of whether it is typically Priorato in style. It trades textbook minerality for lushness, and the fruit is star quality. In the mouth, there’s an explosion of grape matter that leaves coffee, chocolate, peanut brittle and vanilla. Almost drinkable right now but best from 2009.

This dense red shows a powerful structure, yet there’s also a tender texture, delivering sweet berry, garrigue and cocoa flavors that are pure and balanced. This is built for the long haul. Decant now. Best after 2009.

The 2004 Vall Llach is the flagship wine of the estate. Produced from estate old-vine fruit consisting of 65% Cariñena, 20% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine was aged for 16 months in new French oak. Purple-colored, the nose offers scents of pain grille, fresh herbs, mineral, spice box, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate the wine is backward and unyielding. Full-bodied (15.5% alcohol), and packed, there is plenty of ripe tannins and excellent balance but purchasers of this wine will require patience. The 2004 Vall Llach will need a minimum of a decade of cellaring to blossom. It should easily last for several decades but will it ever be fun to drink? If I were young and a gambler, I’d lay away a handful of bottles and roll the dice later in life.

Deep and dark, this is an excellent kitchen-sink blend (it includes Carignan, Merlot, Cabernet, Garnacha and Syrah). For those who like expressive, fruity, no-holds-barred wines, you’re gonna swoon for this. The palate is super lush and full of dark cherry, tobacco, herbs and spice, while the finish is mile-long. Outwardly impressive in a modern style.

A solid red, with plum, dark chocolate and mineral notes. The muscular tannins overshadow the fruit, but there’s enough acidity for freshness and the fruit emerges on the finish. Cariñena, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Syrah. Best after 2008.

The 2004 Idus is made from fruit purchased from local growers cultivating small plots of old-vine Cariñena and Garnacha. The wine consists of 45% Cariñena, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Garnacha and 10% Syrah, a rather atypical blend for Priorat. Fifty percent of the wine went through malolactic fermentation in tank and 50% in barrel. Forty percent of the wine was then aged in new French oak and 60% in second year. The color is saturated purple and the aromatics quite restrained. With vigorous swirling, elements of smoke, earth, mineral, and blackberry reluctantly emerge. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and tightly wound although the raw materials are all there. The fruit is layered and concentrated, the components in balance, and there is enough structure for long-term cellaring. Give this wine 4–6 years of further bottle age and drink it through 2027. Although this wine is certain to have a long life, the real question is how much pleasure it will ultimately provide.

Winemaker's Notes:

Signature Vin Glace is a dessert wine made from Pinot Gris grapes. The fruit forward sweetness is balanced with a beautifully crisp finish, what many call the bright kiss of acidity.
