Tasted on 10th October, 2002

A profound red colour with clear violet hues which characterise its lively colour if not to say it shines.

At first it appears somewhat closed, but after some time it opens up and displays surprising intensity. A wide range of aromas follow: figs, plums, redcurrants, cherries, fresh leather, violets, spices revealing all the complexities of this wine. Its great concentration is accompanied by freshness and smoothness, whilst its perfectly controlled ageing adds elegance to the wine with touches of vanilla, wood smoke and mint.

In the mouth its beautiful ripeness, thanks to grapes harvested at just the right moment, give us a profusion of aromas which from the beginning is marked by explosive minerals and hints of oak. It increases in volume until it reaches its natural balance and peaks. This wine is broad, generous, creamy, unctuous and harmonious, full of power and fruit. The structure is that of an aged wine with full, noble tannins. Perfect in the mouth, like a caress on the palate. Its ageing allows the terroir to demonstrate itself fully and the oak tannins melt with those of the wine.

Rich, concentrated, complex, very typical, it leaves the mouth with a feeling of fullness. Its extremely long finish increases the palate of this excellent wine which will improve over the next few years in bottle. It is very pleasant right now.

It is a handsome ambassador for the Priorat.
