Natalie's Score: 93/100

This Spanish Crianza is savoury and juicy with great complexity and depth. Smooth and full-bodied with lusciously ripe and fleshy dark berries. If you haven't tried many wines from the Priorat region of Spain, this is a great place to start. This wine needs no coaxing out of the glass. Decant for 1-2 hours. This full-bodied red wine pairs well with steak. The 2011 vintage of this full-bodied Spanish red wine is a blend of 35% Garnacha, 35% Mazuelo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This wine is matured for 12 months in American fine grain oak barrels from Tennessee and spends a minimum of another year in bottle before being released from the winery. Some vanilla spice on the finish.

Food pairings: roast beef bites, rib roast, hearty stews.

Reviews and Ratings

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Priorat is one of my personal favourite wine regions, and along with Rioja, one of only two regions to hold the top Spanish Denominacion de Origen Calificada (D.O.Ca.).

This producer also happen to be producing phenominal wines in the area, this one with some Cabernet Sauvignon blended in.

Medium ruby in colour. Wow! Mocha, cedar, clove, tobacco, funk, and red cherry aromas.

This will be excellent with lamb, or a roast.

Definitely good with steak
This juicy Spanish Crianza from the Priorat region is savoury, full-bodied with lush, ripe fruit. The 2011 vintage is a blend of 35% Garnacha, 35% Mazuelo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This wine is matured for 12 months in American fine grain oak barrels from Tennessee and was a Gold Medal winner at the 2016 International Wine Awards. - Community Wine Reviews
