Dark earthy raisiny aromas come with a fair amount of Priorat schist. This hillside blend of 50% Carignan, 30% Garnacha and the rest Merlot and Syrah is big, wide and muscular. Flavors of plum, prune, cassis and raisin are ripe but balanced and powerful. A lemony oak note appears on a staunch, chalky finish. Drink through 2022.
