(a blend of garnacha, carinena, cabernet sauvignon and syrah): Inky ruby. An explosive perfume of candied dark berries, potpourri, woodsmoke and cola, with a strong mineral overtone. Sappy and penetrating, offering sweet cherry compote and cassis flavors and bracing minerality. Puts on weight with air and finishes with firm tannic grip and lingering floral and spice elements. By all means give this wine at least five more years of age.

About This Producer


Rene Barbier of Clos Mogador has earned a place at the top of this region's producer list. He extracts juice of great structure and power from his fruit, all with the help of an olive press, which ensures even higher concentration from the already highly concentrated Priorat varietals. Minimal yields of 80-year old Carinena, as well as younger Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, and Syrah are are hand-harvested from the schist soils in the village of Gratallops. Clos Mogador produces limited quantities of three wines: Clos Mogador (35% Garnacha, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, and 10% Carinena); Clos Manyetes (70% Carinena, 20% Garnacha, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Syrah); and Clos Nelin Joven (50% Garnacha Blanca, 30% Viognier, and 20% Pinot Noir).
