Mas la Mola Negre Priorat 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The vines are planted in different parcels in the Poboleda district, in a unique terroir of llicorella slate slopes, that are identified by solar orientation, unique microclimate, varietals and different vines-stocks within varietals between 35 to 70 years old Garnatxa and Carinyena, and some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Each vineyard and grape variety is vinified and aged separately, which gives us a great variety of blending possibilities for the final blend of Mas la Mola. Aged for 15 months in new and second year fine-grained, medium-toasted French Allier oak barrels. Only the best barrels from each year, are used for the final blend of Mas la Mola. Dark ruby colour. A bouquet of crushed stones, black cherries, blueberries and spicy, earthy notes. Ripe, concentrated and elegant on the palate with plenty of black cherries and dark berry fruit. Well structured with juicy firm tannins, velvety texture, mouth watering acidity and long complex slate mineral aftertaste.

One of the best new red Priorat wines I ever tried. Fresh blackberry and cherry fruit with mineral notes power estructure with a long and elegant aftertaste.

A plush texture carries plum, blackberry, hoison and mineral in this modern red. Firm tannins keep it grounded, while lively acidity keeps it fresh...fruit, spice and licorice linger on the finish.
