    ($125) Medium ruby-red. Claret-like aromas of currant, licorice, tar and nutty oak. Densely packed, tight and juicy, with slightly green but sappy fruit flavors framed by bright acids. Distinctly a wine from a less ripe year but possesses very good concentration, subtle sweetness of fruit and very firm structure. This may well be better for a couple years of additional time in bottle.

    The 2002 Clos Erasmus is undeniably one of the finest Priorats of the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, aged in 100% new Radoux barrels, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with noble notes of crushed rock-like steeliness, elegance, precision, power, and intensity. There is a layered mouthfeel, remarkable concentration for a 2002, and fine length as well as overall balance. This beauty is best consumed during its first 10-15 years of life given the vintage.

    A rich, thick wine. Smoky, choclatey palate. The dark fruits become subtley jam-like. Long finish. A wonderful wine. Has some time yet.
