Opaque purple. Explosive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, cola, incense and potpourri, with smoke and mineral overtones. Deeply pitched black raspberry and cherry flavors show striking clarity and power, with a zesty mineral quality adding lift and cut. Manages to be both powerful and lithe, and finishes with outstanding thrust and mineral-driven persistence. I've found recent vintages of this wine to be more delineated and agile than those of the early 2000s.

The red wines begin with the flagship 2008 Clos Mogador. It is made up of 40% Garnacha, 20% Carinena, with the balance Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Dense purple in color, it sports an expansive bouquet of liquid minerality, wood smoke, game, Asian spices, truffle, and blackberry. Opulent on the palate with layered fruit and precision balance, this loaded Priorat provides a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023.

Firm and fresh, this focused red delivers ripe, pure cherry and red plum fruit framed by tobacco, mineral and espresso notes. This has a silky texture and is accessible, yet shows good density and structure.
