Closed and funky out of the bottle, but time allows the wine to round into form. As it does that, oak and coffee aromas emerge from the schisty bouquet, while the palate is mocha-infused and loaded with dark, masculine fruit. Arguably a little woody and resiny, but there's no challenging the wine's power, integrity and Priorat character.
