Vinens visuelle aspekt er en overdådig, intens rubinrød farve. På næsen er den både komplekst og behageligt med aromaer af modne røde og sorte frugter, perfekt med noter af lakrids og chokolade. På den elegante, smukt tætte gane, et krydret hint overlejret med røgfyldte, peppende woodiness. Tanninerne er vedholdende og med en finesse, der tillader en forbavsende langvarig eftersmag. Dette er en fuldblod af en vin, der omfatter elegant, vedvarende kvalitet. Selvom den er ganske storslået nu, kan du gemme den væk et sted i et par år. Du bliver ikke skuffet!

Many of the leading ‘historical’ wines of Priorat prove that a mixture of local and international varieties can produce outstanding results, and this magnificent 2015 wine is no exception. It contains 20% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah here, blended with 40% Garnatxa and 20% Carinyena. It's deep black and red in colour, with aromatic complexity from a soft, suffusing, earthy warmth and almost meaty plum fruits. On the palate the wine is concentrated, deep and forthright. The clarity and brilliance of the fruit flavours are typical of Priorat, ballasted in this case by dense tannins and vivacious, fruit-saturated acidity. It grows more savoury towards the finish: plum and stone modulate towards pine and Mediterranean scrub. A Priorat of total assurance, its alcohol invisible other than in the wine’s suffusing and necessary warmth.

This time there were two vintages of the top-of-the-range red to taste, as the 2014 is almost finished and the 2015 Clos Mogador will be released soon. In this warmer vintage, there is a little more Cariñena in the blend, with the final breakdown something like 45% Garnacha, 29% Cariñena, 16% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This had the same vinification and aging as the 2014: fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a 35- to 45-day maceration, followed by an élevage in 300-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres that lasted 18 months. 2015 is a rounder and easier year than 2014, and it feels a little riper, supple but with good freshness. It's clean and precise with nicely integrated oak. This was an easy vintage for the winery, and the wines are easy to understand and more approachable early on. 31,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.
