Nelin 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The flagship, the 2007 Clos Mogador is made up of 40% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, 20% Syrah, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is purple/black-colored with a sensational bouquet of mineral, truffle, espresso, black cherry, blueberry, and licorice. Dense and Reubenesque on the palate, it has great concentration, loads of savory fruit, impeccable balance, and several years of aging potential. Accessible now, this lengthy offering will be at its best from 2013 to 2027. It is one of the stars of the vintage in Priorat. (Apr 2010)

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Druckvolles, komplexes Bouquet nach dunklen, reifen Früchten, Röstaromen und mineralischen Aromen. Sehr weicher Auftakt, schmelzig und dicht, gute Struktur und Hamonie. Kirschen und Brombeeren, mit reifen Tanninen im Abgang.

It is purple/black-colored with a sensational bouquet of mineral, truffle, espresso, black cherry, blueberry, and licorice.

Accessible now, this lengthy offering will be at its best from 2013 to 2027. It is one of the stars of the vintage in Priorat. Glass-staining purple. Explosively perfumed aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola, candied licorice and black cardamom, with a smoky mineral undertone and a hint of fruitcake. Lush, decadent dark fruit flavors show a liqueur-like density but don't come off as heavy thanks to slow-mounting minerality and a touch of spicy black pepper. There's nothing shy about this, and while there's the ripeness and weight that I expect from this wine, there's also a brightness that bodes well for aging. Kirsch and chocolate flavors mingle in this bright, chewy red, with good concentration and bold flavors. Not showing much complexity now, but could unfold with time. Drink now through 2016. 2,500 cases made. -TM
