From the small Priorat village of Porrera, owners Lluis Llach and Enric Costa specialize in old vine Grenache and Carignan. Their velvety-rich wines are strikingly concentrated and loaded with sweet, spicy berry fruit, with normally suave tannins...
92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004
($85; 14. 6% alcohol; a blend of 50% old-vines carinena, 35% merlot and 15% cabernet sauvignon) Bright, deep ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Lush and suave on entry, then superconcentrated and penetrating in the middle, with brooding flavors of cassis, black cherry, wild strawberry, minerals and chocolate complicated by notes of tar and licorice. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and excellent length. Rather austere today and not yet revealing its personality. This should be long-lived but really needs at least five years to show its inherent complexity.
