2007 Genium Cellars Costers
"The 2007 Genium Costers is composed of 50% Carinena, 30% Garnacha, with the balance Merlot and Syrah. It was aged in 100% new French oak for 14 months before bottling without filtration. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up an already complex bouquet of pain grille, liquid mineral, Asian spices, incense, plum, and black cherry. Full-bodied, opulent, layered, and loaded, this large-scaled offering manages to remain light on its feet while displaying an exceptionally lengthy finish. Give it 4-5 years and drink it from 2015 to 2027."
â¨â¨"Genium Celler began in 2002 when six families from the Priorat village of Poboleda joined forces." (05/11) - 94+ Pts Jay Miller - The Wine Advocate
"(50% carinena, 30% garnacha and 10% each of merlot and syrah) Opaque ruby. Pungent dark berries and spicecake on the nose, with complicating notes of dried rose and cola. Fleshy and smooth, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and an absence of rough edges. Already appealing but this is balanced to age. The finish is sweet, precise and very long." (10/10) -91 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"This wine is produced from a blend of Syrah and Garnacha from the El Rincon estate vineyard in the Aldea del Freso region of the DO Vinos de Madrid. The family strives to capture the unique terroir in the bottle of each wine they make, and El Rincon is no exception. Here, the vines are grown in decomposed granite, which they believe lends an unmistakable elegance and precision to the final wine."
"El Rincon is deep ruby-red in color, and marked by expressive notes of ripe plums, violets, spice and a hint of caramel. On the palate, it shows outstanding balance and complexity with plenty of ripe fruit, backed up with firm but soft tannins. Pair this wine with roast pork tenderloin smothered in stewed apricots or lamb casseroles." -Importer
"Marques de Grinon wines are sourced from the prized Dominio de Valdepusa vineyard in Castilla-La Mancha. Valdepusa stands apart from the rest of the region, as its 1068-foot elevation is one of the highest in Spain, and its top layer of soil is similar to Burgundy's - it is almost pure limestone."
"Dominio de Valdepusa has been in the noble family of Carlos Falco Fernandez de Cordova, the Marquis of Grinon, since 1292. Referred to as the father of Spanish wine, Falco pioneered the modernization of vine growing and winemaking in Spain. Falco graduated from the University of California Davis with a degree in viticulture and oenology in 1964. He returned home and began making wine, all the while pushing the boundaries of winemaking as set by Francoist Spain. In 1974, he introduced the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties as well as drip irrigation and night harvesting." -Importer
2007 Marques De Grinon Rincon
"The 2007 El Rincon is a blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Garnacha from the Aldea del Fresno and El Rincon vineyards. It has an ebullient bouquet of macerated dark cherries, soy and creme de cassis that carry the oak extremely well. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannins. It is very refined and focused with a lilting, fresh finish of strawberry and red cherries. Drink now-2018."
"Marques de Grinon is sourced from the heralded 50-hectare Dominio de Valdepusa estate that is said to have the same topsoil as Burgundy. Every top consultant seems to have consulted here since 1990, including Michel Rolland, Claude Bouguignon, Dr. Richard Smart and Emile Peynaud. However, it is Carlos Falco, the man who has been instrumental in modernizing the region's viticulture and introducing Bordeaux varieties, who is at the heart of the estate. I found the wines to be intermittently outstanding, though to be frank, I discerned negligible differences in quality between the entry-level wines and the expensive top cuvees." (10/12) - 91 Pts Neal Martin - The Wine Advocate
"This wine was made from grapes planted on slopes in the region, named 'Costers' (dramatically steep land, 45 degrees, where no machine can be used), where the vineyards are practically a hundred years old, a fact that provides a repeatable minerality, concentration and structure in comparison to other zones. The grapes undergo a 48 hour pre-fermentation cold soak followed by temperature controlled fermentation between 84 degrees F to 91 degrees F in small stainless steel vats, and are macerated for a 30 day period. Aged in new French Allier oak barrels of various toasts and coopers for 14 months. Unfiltered." -Importer
"In the year 2002, six families from the municipality of Poboleda (Priorat) with a long tradition in vine growing decided to join their efforts in order to make high quality wines from their own crops. All of them have day jobs outside of the bodega, but share the work in the vineyards and cellar to make the project succeed."
"This winery is located in the basement of a house that dates back to 1265, which was the very first settlement of the Carthusian monks of Scala Dei. 15 hectares of vineyards are owned between all of the families. 7 hectares are Costers, 3 hectares of organically farmed vines (Ecologic) and 5 hectares of terraced vines on narrow terraces with two rows of vines each."
"The varietal makeup of the vineyards includes Garnacha, Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Costers vines were planted from 1910 and produce - 300 grams of grapes per vine. Younger vines were planted from 1980 on the terraces and produce between 900g and 1 kg per vine."
"The goal of the winery is to produce wines with a typical character of Priorat based on the local Garnacha and Carinena. Having vineyards in three different zones of Priorat (Poboleda, La Morera del Montsant and Torroja del Priorat) allows for different character, tone, complexity and personality in the wines. Aging in oak is very important for the style of wine, as without it the wine would seem unfinished, but only light to medium toast is used so that wood flavors do not dominate." -Importer
