90 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The purple-colored 2006 Vega Escal is composed of 60% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, and 10% Syrah aged for six months in French and American oak. It exhibits an alluring bouquet of smoke, crushed stone, lavender, leather, black cherry, and blueberry. Elegantly-styled on the palate, it has layers of savory fruit, good depth and concentration, and a lengthy finish. It will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020. This value-priced Priorat is a good introduction to the region." 90 Points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"All of the fruit for this wine is grown in and around Gratallops, where there tends to be warmer daytime temperatures than in the more northerly subregions of Priorat. Vines range in age from 10 years for the Syrah to 50 years for the Carinena. Grapes were hand harvested in the middle of September. Varietals were fermented separately with a total of 22 days on skins prior to pressing. Aged 6 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels." -Importer
"The region has produced superb quality wines for more than 8 centuries, starting when Carthusian monks founded a priory or Priorat in 1163. Phylloxera wiped out nearly all of the plantings of grapes at the end of the 19th Century and it wasnât until the 1950s that serious replanting began. The region rocketed to fame in the 1990's as a new generation of winemakers came to the area combining new technology and old vines for superior results. This tiny region has nearly 90 active wineries, up from about 25 just 5 years ago. This is a testament to the rebirth of this unique region." -Importer
This wine scored 88 points in the Wine Spectator, the International Wine Cellar, and the Rhone Report and 82 points in the Wine Enthusiast.
