"Deep purple color. Aromas and flavors of lingonberry, savory herbs, powdery florals, earth, and dried mint with a slightly chewy, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, very complex, long finish evoking accents of almond and rose water with crunchy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A delicious red from Priorat with riveting twists and turns; new nuances to discover around every corner."
Priorat is in the North East corner of Spain and is one of the most collectible and well known regions in the country.
It is most known for their Garnacha-based wines, but they are able to blend in a decent amount of other grapes as well. They are some of the fullest bodied wines out there, and also some of the most collectible due to their ability to age for long periods of time.
The family who makes the Grifoll Declara Priorat is one of the most historical families in the area. They have been winegrowers since 1736 and they have been bottling their own wines since 1880. Now, the family makes wine in a couple different regions of Spain, this one in Priorat.
The wine is dense in color, full of dark fruit flavors with a very long earthy, stony finish. There are a lot of similarities between Priorat and Chateauneuf du Pape in style and longevity. The tannins are stiff and the acidity is high which is why, just like Chateauneuf, these wines can age for long periods of time.
This one is pretty young, and a little more finessed than most, so you can definitely open one now, but don't be afraid to pick up a couple extras and lay them down, they have the potential of being amazing 5-10 years from now.
