Wine Spectator ReviewCoffee, cola and earth flavors run though this burly red. There's a core of plum fruit, and enough acidity to keep it lively. Muscular but well-integrated, with lots of oak. Grenache, Carignane, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2008.Wine Tasting NotesThe Melis shows a deep purple black color, with beautiful aromas of black cherry, tobacco and violets, as well as unique mineral notes derived from the licorella slate of our vineyards. The palate is full and rich, with a silky texture balanced by fine tannins and a long finish. We recommend decanting this wine 30 to 60 minutes prior to drinking.

Powerful is almost an understatement in describing this big boy. The nose starts out fiery and rough before settling to intense. It’s all guns blazing on the palate, where tight, racy raspberry fruit holds court. With intense oak and a molten core generating 15.5% alcohol you may want to tread carefully. The ride is not for the weak. Garnacha with Carignan, Syrah and Cab Sauvignon.

This red shows impressive concentration. It's full-bodied, with ripe, dark flavors of boysenberry and blackberry, anise and coffee. Mouthfilling tannins need time to soften. Best from 2008 through 2018. 800 cases made. -TM Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Priorat in Spain. 2004 Melis Priorat 750ml
