  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    (the same blend as the Miserere) Deep ruby. Ripe cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by cured tobacco, iron and fresh flowers. Vanilla and baking spices come up with air and carry onto the palate, which offers sweet red and dark berry flavors and a velvety texture. Leaves sweet blackberry and boysenberry behind on the long, seamless finish. Extremely alluring wine that is surprisingly accessible already.

    Cherry, kirsch, vanilla, herbal and anise flavors show a ripe, sweet character, supported by firm tannins in this lean red. There's a fine balance of fruit and structure.

    The 2005 Clos de L'Obac is 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Garnacha, and the balance Syrah, Carinena, and Merlot. The wine was aged for 14 months in new French oak and bottled unfiltered. More structured and expressive than its sibling, the nose delivers smoke, slate, scorched earth, black cherry, and blueberry. Plush and layered, the wine has excellent length and 6-8 years of cellaring potential. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2025.

  • Central to the "re-birth" of Priorat that began in the 1980s, Costers del Siurana was established in 1987 by the Pastrana Jarque family with the mission of re-building the vineyards and reputation of the region. Terraces were re-constructed, vineyards revived and replanted, and new varietals were introduced to supplement the existing old vine Garnacha, Tempranillo, and Carinena. The wines - Clos de l'Obac, Miserere, and Dolc de l'Obac - are estate grown and produced, aged in French oak, and bottled unfiltered.
