    ($98; a blend of garnacha, cabernet, carinena and syrah) Opaque purple. Primary blackberry and boysenberry aromas open with air to display sexy Asian spice and floral character, complemented by notes of cola and smoky minerals. Velvety dark berry preserve flavors are framed by supple tannins and become spicier with aeration. The spiciness gains strength on the long, sappy, focused finish, which strongly echoes the cola note. This is livelier than the 2005, 2004 or 2003 bottlings. (Europvin USA, Van Nuys, CA)

    The opaque purple-colored 2006 Clos Mogador has an enticing nose of pain grille, pencil lead, truffle, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. Full-bodied, dense, and layered on the palate, it has loads of succulent black fruit, spice box, ripe tannin, impeccable balance, and a lengthy, pure finish.

    This sleek, firm red offers dark, alluring flavors of chocolate, mocha, licorice and plum. Oaky, but there's good density, and the assertive tannins melt on the spicy finish.

    A great wine. Tannic but yet rich fruit flavors with a very long finish. Has plenty of heft to last quite a few years but enjoyable now. Tasted at Tinto Fino 85 1st Ave., NY

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).
