Priorat is one of only 3 wine producing area of Spain who have the top DOCa classification - the others being Rioja and Ribera del Duero.  Made predominantly from Garnacha (Grenache) grown on high altitude vineyards from low yielding vines they made intense, rich wines of higher alcohol.  

Garnatxa, Carinyena, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Very dark and deep. It has a pure nose with substantial aromas of pencil lead, ink, meatiness, ripe black fruit, forest floor, and pretentious oak. Intense but not over-made, very sweet and gorgeous. Vigorous but balanced. Clearly Priorat. - 18.5 Janis Robinson Points.  A score not given to many wines.  

This would make a great gift for a wine lover who wants to try something Spanish other than Rioja or Ribera.  Having been aged in our cellar since 2007, it is mature and drinking beautifully now.
