Nose In the nose it is powerful and concentrated, with a high intensity and a clear predominance of aromas of very ripe black fruit, juicy, over pleasant toasted hints and balsamic nuances and herbs of Mediterranean hill. Mineral and spiced background. Taste In the mouth, it follows the same pattern than in the nose, concentrated, powerful and fleshy. Very well structured, with a high tannic sensation, ripe tannins very present and combined with a fantastic acidity which holds the alcoholic content. Very long and very persistent finish.
Sight Intense dark cherry colour with violet edges and dense, slow tears. Nose This wine is characterised by its intense, complex and expressive aromas. Before swirling the glass, nothing but intense notes of ripe fruit, with liquor hints, is noticed. Gradually, some light smoked notes appear. When the wine opens up, the fruit becomes more expressive and the toasted aromas become more intense. A great minerality also appears wrapped in sweet spices (vanilla, cocoa and cinnamon) and good notes of undergrowth. Very balanced at the end. Taste A wine with a soft and bulky attack that gives way to a very intense wine, with notes of fruit and fruit jam with good toasted notes and  fresh balsamic aromas. Long and greatly balanced mid palate, with a very silky texture. A tasty and even slightly mellow wine (especially because of the aromas of cocoa, creamy toffee and spices). Very good acidity that balances the whole set and ripe and well integrated tannins. Long finish with a great persistence. A very nice, mature and serious red wine. Very round.
Sight Intense dark cherry colour with violet edges. Dense and slow tears. Nose Powerful and complex aromas that remind us of the lands of Priorat. Many notes of ripe black fruit with some licorice touches are noticed along with noble woods' toasted aromas and a great charge of mineral notes (slate soils). When it opens up, the aromas gain in intensity and herbal notes (which remind of the Mediterranean forests), sweet spices (vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa) and fresh balsamic hints are also noticed. Taste Excellent wine from Priorat with a wide mouth-filling attack. Very tasty, smooth, gentle and warm mid palate. The notes of fruit are still present but the balsamic aromas gain ground. Ripe tannins. Very good, long and persistent finish which leaves a liquorised aftertaste. Very pleasant wine, perfect to meet the new wines of Priorat.
Sight Dark cherry opaque colour. Dense and persistent tear.
Nose Intense combination of flavors from the Priorat region: ripe fruit and aromas of vanilla, chocolate and roasted provided by the good wood with a note of slate (from the Priorat soils, which provide minerality to this wine). These aromas in the base are complemented by large herbaceous and balsamic notes.
Taste

Sight Cherry intense.
Nose Has the aromas of earth, damp earth, garrigue scrub and ripe blackberries. Aroma of warm character.
Taste In the mouth it is dense with nerve and with the entry of delicious Grenache, Carignan force ferésega of bitterness and a final reminder that the hard ground where he was born. Wine and warm with ripe tannins.
